Young mothers need support and care – both for them and their children.  Both of those are available at Malvern Place.

Malvern Place offers support and accommodation for young women up to the age of 25 years, who are pregnant or parenting and are homeless or at the risk of homelessness.  The service provides a safe and secure environment in individual fully-furnished family units.  Support is offered to assist with pregnancy or parenting issues, support with personal goals, education or training and, importantly, support to find and maintain appropriate, long-term housing.

There are also opportunities for children – the child-safe environment at Malvern Place provides on-site specialist children’s support and links with community child care providers, community health services and services especially for children.  Support can continue for young women and their children once they have left Malvern Place through their outreach program.
