Teen Parents Support Programme

The Teen Parents Support Programme -TPSP for short- is a support service, funded mainly by Tusla, for young mothers, young fathers and their families from pregnancy until the baby is 2 years of age.

There are 11 TPSPs throughout the country.  They offer support, information and advocacy in all areas of a young parent’s life including health, relationships, parenting, child care, social welfare entitlements, education, training and anything else about which the mother or father is concerned.
