Dads

Dads matter too!  Click here to download our poster and here to see our Facebook page.

We recognise that community services can often appear to be geared around the needs of Mothers.  Dads can feel left out.  However, we feel that fathers have an equally important role to play with their children and have needs of their own - after all children don't come with "instructions!" and a parent's role can be very demanding for both Mums and Dads. 

So Dads, if you would like to find out more about how you can get involved, or you have ideas about how we can be supporting Dads in general, please let us know. Don't forget our Dads'n'Tots group held fortnightly on Saturdays! 

We have searched the internet for some links which you may find useful, these are listed below for you to take a look at.
