Originally set up in England in 2007 within the Department of Health (DH), the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) is a programme that provides ongoing, intensive support to young, first-time mothers and their babies. It aims to transform the life chances of the most disadvantaged children and families, helping to improve social mobility and break the cycle of intergenerational disadvantage. Impetus-PEF has been part of a consortium of three organisations helping to manage the FNP National Unit since 2013.
With Impetus-PEF’s help, the FNP National Unit has successfully transitioned out of the DH and into a sustainable independent entity. It has drafted a clear strategy for sustainable growth and it passed a major milestone this year when it achieved its government-set target of serving 16,000 economically disadvantaged families at any one time in England.
