While some girls cope well as teenage mothers and often have a range of support services, young fathers do not often access services in their own right. This paper reviews literature about services for young men from the time they become sexually active. Through the use of a case study, it then asks questions about the type and nature of services required by young fathers. Health and social care practitioners may identify critical points in the life of a young father and offer appropriate services and 'joined-up' intervention, thereby facilitating long- and short-term involvement in the life of the child.
