The Babies are a great tool to support training providers for vocational and life skills courses.
Young men and women around the UK have experienced taking a Baby for a weekend, either through residential courses or tailored in-house programmes and all report back positive lessons learned from the time spent with all the Babies in the range.

The Drug and Alcohol Babies play a great role in educating young people, especially those partaking in risky behaviour.
These Babies really hit home the consequences of drinking and drug taking during pregnancy and the RealCare Babies emphasis the demands and commitment needed to parent an infant.
Young people moving into their first home often find the experience a lonely one. Many supported housing projects help these vulnerable young people adjust by providing vocational programmes to support their progress and education.
The supported housing organisations we work with provide programmes from Mum and Baby support groups through to drug and alcohol education and find the use of the virtual Babies really helps get their message across.
The RealCare Babies, Drug and Alcohol Babies can be found in many prisons throughout the UK, mostly supporting drug and alcohol education and Good Dad programmes.
Supporting expectant fathers and fathers separated from their own babies, these courses help young men adjust to having a real baby in their lives and coping with fatherhood once they leave the prison.
The Shaken Baby can also support anger management programmes and teach the important lesson of why you should never shake a baby.
