The Baby Reality programme for young people aims to educate and up skill young people around a range  important issues such as identifying healthy relationships, assertiveness, using contraception and the realities of parenthood.  The course culminates in the young people taking home the life like Baby Reality dolls for 2 days and nights so they get a real feel of the challenges of parenthood. We offer doll hire for professionals and youth groups who are already trained in delivering the programme. 

We also offer staff training for practioners who want to deliver this programme to groups of young people.
