Young Fathers Conferences 2010

12 January 2010

Work with young fathers is rising up the policy agenda, as the impact these boys and men have on their partners and children becomes more widely recognised.  While young fathers, like young mothers, face particular challenges, the rewards of supporting them successfully through the transition to parenthood are high.

The conferences – Not so invisible? Supporting Young Fathers – are being held in two locations in the UK during March of this year. The events are a collaboration between the Fatherhood Institute, Young People in Focus (YPF), and the Teenage Pregnancy Unit (TPU) in the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).
