Choices Project 

Central and Eastern European Teenage Pregnancy Report

 

A high number of teenage pregnancies amongst the Central and Eastern European Communities prompted investigation and funding to explore the issue. 
 
Following recommendations from the Local Authority, NHS, Schools, Colleges and the Voluntary Sector, several delivery activities were designed. The aim of these activities were designed to support Central Eastern European (CEE) and Roma young people and parents to talk about relationships, growing up and sexual health, as well as improve their awareness of information and services that are available to support them.  
 
The overall aim of the project was to discover how best the communities themselves and public services could help to prevent unplanned teenage pregnancies, and provide better information and support services to CEE/Roma young people, to enable them to make informed choices about their relationships and lives.
