The Duchess of Cambridge recently visited Sunshine House, where she met the Southwark Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) team.
FNP is a voluntary home visiting programme for first-time parents aged 24 and under: parents are partnered with a specially trained family nurse who visits them regularly, from early pregnancy until their child is two.
As part of The Duchess’s ongoing commitment to Early Years, today’s visit focused on learning more about the valuable work of Family Nurse Partnership.
The Duchess also spoke with parents who have been through FNP to better understand how the programme has helped them and their children.
Today’s centre in Southwark is operated by Evelina London Children’s Hospital – of which The Duchess became Patron of in December last year.
