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.

This service is offered across Nottinghamshire County.
