Family Nurse Partnership – Child and Adolescent
The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP), is a structured programme of intensive home visits delivered by highly trained Family Nurses to young women who are pregnant with their first baby, continuing through to the baby’s second birthday.
Initially part of a pilot scheme, FNP is now being rolled out across the country and is delivered under a licence held by the National Unit at the Department of Health.
Research has identified the benefits of early interventions to the developing brains of babies so the outcomes from this programme are forecast to have a positive impact on childhood development. The Family Nurses build relationships with their clients and their partners and other family members and support them to make positive behaviour changes.
