    Hi as a volunteer parenting support network coordinator for Care for the Family organisation ( in Manchester I wondered if you were aware of the excellent parenting resource for DADS that we produce? Time Out for Dads is a parenting course specifically for Dads and has proved extremely successful.The course is evidence based. Details of the content, length and supporting resources to this course can be found on the Care for the Family website.

    If you would like any further details I would be really interested in communicating with you about this topic as in my experience of working with parents and families over the past 20+ years I have not seen much positive change in engaging dads.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
