A short introduction to the Family Nurse Partnership

The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) Programme, a preventive programme for vulnerable young first-time mothers from early pregnancy until a child is two, offers intensive and structured home visiting, delivered by specially trained nurses. FNP builds on evidence that the first years of life have a long lasting impact on a child’s future health, relationships and happiness. FNP has three aims, to improve: pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, and parents’ economic self sufficiency. The methods are based on theories of human ecology, self efficacy and attachment. This video shows real-life experiences of delivering and receiving the FNP programme. More about FNP: www.dh.gov.uk
