St Michael’s Fellowship, a south London charity which empowers young fathers through a range of activities including film-making and market gardening, is the winner of the first ever Dads Included Award – announced today.

The Dads Included Award recognises projects which work hard to forge empowering partnerships with fathers. The winners will receive a £500 cheque from Minister for Children and Families Tim Loughton at today’s Fatherhood Institute national conference, Engaging Fathers as Partners, in central London.

Two other projects received commendations: Safe Ground, an arts-based educational organisation which works with male prisoners and their families through its family relationship and parenting programmes, Family Man and Fathers Inside; and PROFF (Promoting the Role of Father Figures), a male carers’ group in South Lanarkshire.

We will be featuring more information about the winner and commended projects in the coming weeks.
