Transform children’s lives with our new Dads Included Toolkit
I’m an elderly grandfather looking back on a life in which I spent far too little time, energy and attention on/with/for my children. I can send you the odd donation but that’s not enough. What can I do?
What an illustration of how important it is to engage with fathers – not just for the dads (or grandads in this case), but for the children whose lives they so affect!
Our new Dads Included Toolkit for developing father-inclusive services, priced at just £15, outlines how you can shape your service so it works for dads as well as mums…and, most importantly, for children, for whom a good relationship with dads is so important.
Presented as a series of 12 pull-out cards in a sturdy A4 wallet, the Dads Included Toolkit offers – for practitioners and managers in any setting – practical, tried and tested solutions to the challenges of engaging with fathers and father-figures, including:
- Getting dads through the door
- Knowing what to do with them once they’re there
- Skilling up your workforce to work with dads
- Keeping the right records
- Finding out what services mums and dads really want.
It also shows how you can use the FREE online Dads Included Test as a tool to assess and develop your service.
In these straitened times, the Dads Included Toolkit could be the publication that enables your service to retain a focus on the whole family, and address the Government’s aspiration of supporting shared parenting from the earliest stages of pregnancy.African-Caribbean fathers, Disability, Domestic violence, Drugs and alcohol, Early years, Maternity, Muslim fathers, Parenting education, Schools, Separated families, Vulnerable families, Young fathers
