Young parents looking for a place to feel supported by others in a similar age bracket can now attend a new playgroup hosted by Gunida Gunyah Aboriginal Corporation.
After COVID-19 restrictions ease, the supported playgroup will be held Thursday mornings from 10am-12 noon, and is targeted for parents aged 16-24.
The group will give young parents an opportunity to build social support by developing friendships with like-minded peers and relationships with local community agencies.
Attendees can engage with Warranggal Dhiyan staff, and access support, information and advice.
Gunida Gunyah chief executive officer Jane Bender said young parents wouldn't go to other supported playgroups because other attendees tended to be older, and so they didn't feel comfortable.
"They feel like they're judged for being so young so we tried to bridge that gap between the 16-24 year olds," Ms Bender said.
Ms Bender said it was aimed at Indigenous parents, but non-Indigenous locals wouldn't be denied attendance.
"We're all about inclusion," she said.
The playgroup will be held at the community building at Gunida Gunyah on Farrar Road. Morning tea will also be provided.
