In-house Training from Fathers Plus

4 June 2008

Children North East Fathers Plus Service have developed two new training programmes that will enable agencies and organisations to meet the requirements of the new updated Child Health Promotion Programme (CHPP) in relation to working with fathers.

The new updated Child Health Promotion Programme (CHPP): Pregnancy and the first five years of life was launched on 17th March 2008.

It states;

"The contribution that fathers make to their children’s development, health and wellbeing is important, but services do not do enough to recognise or support them."

"Maternity and child health services are used to working mainly with mothers, and this has an impact on their ability to engage with fathers."
(Page 9, The Child Health Promotion Programme, Department of Health, 17th March 2008)
