Family Nurse Partnership

Young woman holding baby The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) programme is a home visiting service providing ongoing, intensive support to first-time, teenage mothers and their babies (plus fathers and other family members, with mother's permission). Structured home visits are delivered by highly trained Family Nurses and start in early pregnancy, continuing until the child's second birthday.

FNP is a preventive programme and has the potential to transform the life chances of the children and families in our society, helping to improve social mobility and break the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage.

Family nurses use programme materials and methods to enable young mothers (and fathers) to achieve three main aims:

  • To improve their pregnancy outcomes, so that their baby has the best start in life
  • To improve their child's health and development by developing their parenting knowledge and skills
  • To improve parents' economic self sufficiency, by helping them to achieve their aspirations (such as employment or returning to education)

The service is delivered Monday to Friday between 8am-8pm in home and community settings. The service does not operate at weekends or Bank Holidays.

Family Nurses have close links with Nottinghamshire Children's Centre services, Health Visitors and School Nursing services.

This service is offered across Nottinghamshire County.
