Abstract

With recent austerity measures, including a reduction in local authority funding and some not for profit services, new parents can be faced with limited resources. Accessing services is a way for parents to meet similar people and build social connections. This article describes the development of a 6-week rolling programme to support the needs of new parents in a rural community, and to bridge the gap currently identified in local service provision. The positive effects of this intervention are evidence of the difference health visiting services and effective partnership working can produce.
