Teenage pregnancy

Evidence-based frameworks providing structure for local areas to prevent unplanned teenage pregnancies and support young parents and their children.

The teenage pregnancy prevention framework and the framework for supporting teenage mothers and young fathers are designed to:

  • help local areas assess their local programmes to see what’s working well
  • identify any gaps in services
  • strengthen the prevention and support pathways for all young people, young parents and their children

Both frameworks provide an evidence-based structure for a collaborative whole system approach to prevent teenage pregnancies and support teenage parents.

The teenage pregnancy narrative reports bring together key data and information for local authorities to help inform commissioning decisions to reduce unplanned teenage conceptions and improve outcomes for young parents.
