250 couples expecting a baby will be able to take part in a pilot project to examine their physical and emotional health and that of their relatives.
On World Parents’ Day, the Chief Executive of Sapport, Ruth Sciberras, explained that this initiative would support the most vulnerable families and refer them to support services.
She pointed out that interested couples will be asked to fill out a form with the help of midwives. It was said that an evaluation will be carried out by the pilot project experts before the initiative was launched throughout the country.
After launching the second positive parenting campaign, the Minister for the Family and Social Solidarity, Michael Falzon, said the campaign was aimed at overcoming the challenges between adolescents and parents.
Minister Falzon explained that the campaign is being led by professionals, including a family therapist, who will be a pillar of support for vulnerable families.
