An Intern's experience at our Young Parents Group

As an intern, it was my first time attending the weekly young parents group run by St. Michael's at Brockwell Park.

After an early morning trip to Tesco to pick up ingredients to feed 20, we headed over to Brockwell Park’s One O’Clock Club. The stereotypes of young parents portrayed in the media as anti-social and disorderly swirled in my mind. One look around the children’s centre made me realise I was deceived.

Cook Up Group

Cook Up Group for young parents in Lambeth

Cook Up is a free weekly drop in group which welcomes all young parents and their children. 

Each week, we make something different using straightforward recipies and easy to obtain ingredients which are great value for money.

Learn how to prepare healthy nutritious meals from scratch and enjoy them with the group. It is a chance for you to make friends over lunch and for your children to socialise. 

Thank you to all our supporters in 2016

Thank you! Your support has changed the lives of local children and families. 

“St Michael’s helped me to be open and confident, to say ‘I can do this, regardless of how old I am, how immature I was in the past, I can be a great dad!’”

We’ve been able to help 51 pregnant teenagers, 102 young mothers and 40 young fathers to give their new baby the best possible start in life.

One O'Clock Club Positive Parenting Tree

The fabulous Positive Parenting Tree created by parents and children at our weekly Friday group for young parents at Brockwell Park's One O'Clock Club over several weeks.

The young parents explored the impact of both positive and negative childhood experiences on their own parenting. They looked at the skills and tools they need for positive, healthy parenting and how to break cycles that could hold their child back.
