We offer a range of services and support for dads and male carers. We are on a mission to help dads, grandads and other male carers connect with the children in their lives.

We encourage dads-to-be, dads and male carers to use all our services. We know that this is not always possible due to work and other commitments, so are flexible in how we deliver services and listen to what you want.

Do you have any ideas on what would help you? Are there any activities you would like to do with the children in your lives? Let us know on our Catch the Comment Form.

spending extra quality time with them. It’s a great club that’s run by Dads who volunteer their time and do an excellent job!”
