The Brave Foundation is an Australian charity which aims to equip expecting and parenting teens with resources, referral and education opportunities to help build happy, healthy and skilled families. The Brave Foundation commissioned the Peter Underwood Centre to provide an independent evaluation of the Brave Foundation’s national trial of the Supporting Expecting and Parenting Teens (SEPT) Program (funded through the federal Try, Test and Learn scheme). The Final Report of the research is available from the Centre’s website.
In the words of one young parent in the research: “We do want to be a good parent and give the best to our children, and to re-connect to education or employment and improve our lives”.
A recording will be made available on the Peter Underwood Centre website.
