Family Nurse Partnerships

The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is an evidence based, preventative programme offered to vulnerable young mothers having their first baby. It is a nurse led intensive home-visiting programme from early pregnancy to the age of two.

It has four aims:

  • maternal health
  • improve pregnancy outcomes;
  • improve child health and development;
  • improve parents' economic self sufficiency.

FNP is a licensed programme with structured inputs and well tested theories and methods. FNP has been developed over 30 years.

The criteria for women to be offered FNP are:

  • All first time mothers aged 20 and under at conception
  • Eligible if previous pregnancy ended in miscarriage, termination, still birth;
  • Enrolment should be as early as possible in pregnancy and no later than the 28th week of pregnancy.

The FNP was launched in Enfield on the 9th October 2013, and will start working with  young women from November 2013.
