Working with Dads: getting started, staying focused
Sponsored by The Parenting Fund
A major part of the Fatherhood Institute’s mission is to support professionals working with children and families where they interact with fathers and father-figures (including stepfathers, uncles, granddads and others) – and to help them talk about fatherhood and fathers in an informed way with the children, their mothers and other female carers.
From this page you can access our comprehensive research summaries about fathers and fatherhood; our extensive, and growing, library of case studies of promising practice around father-work; and a range of briefings on proven approaches to implementation of father-inclusive practices.
Whether you work in maternity or antenatal services; early years; schools or extended schools; family welfare; youth services or other statutory or voluntary agencies that engage with mums and dads – we hope this page will inspire you to develop a more father-inclusive service.
