EVALUATING the family nurse partnership IN THE UK

The Centre for Trials Research at Cardiff University has a long-standing interest and experience in evaluating early years interventions and has been evaluating The Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) since 2008.


The Family Nurse Partnership

The Family Nurse Partnership programme (or FNP) offers young mothers having their first baby support from a Family Nurse. The nurse visits the woman at home during pregnancy and until the baby’s second birthday. As FNP has been shown to help young families in the USA the government introduced it in England. 

FNP aims to help first time young mums to:

  • have a healthy pregnancy

  • improve their child's health and development

  • plan their own future
