The Dad Pack is Back…But Only For A Short Time!

12 March 2008

Our first and second print-runs of this cutting edge, high-quality pack of materials for fathers – the perfect solution to your obligations, under a range of government policy initiatives and legislation* to provide specialist information to dads – sold out, with minimal advertising, in just 3 months each time.

Thanks to a new DCSF grant we’re now printing some more, which will be in our warehouse in the next few weeks. As many will leave it immediately – we have a pile of back orders to fulfil – we suggest you act quickly if you would like to pre-order some. This will be positively the last reprint of this resource.

All DAD Pack orders are accompanied by Notes for Practitioners.
