Our work

The Fatherhood Institute, a registered UK charity (number 1075104), is one of the most respected fatherhood organisations in the world.

Our work

The Fatherhood Institute works to build a society that values, prepares, and supports men as involved fathers and caregivers. Our work focuses on policy, research, and practice. We collate, participate in, and publicise research; lobby for legal and policy changes; and help public services, employers, and others become more father-inclusive. Our partners and clients include government, NHS and local authorities, family service providers and organisations, universities, NGOs, employers – as well as fathers.

Our vision

Our vision is of a society that gives all children a strong and positive relationship with their father and any father-figures; a society that supports both mothers and fathers as earners and carers; and that prepares boys and girls for a future shared role in caring for children.

The Fatherhood Institute is a tiny organisation with few overheads, which punches above its weight. We welcome donations.

Please note: we are not a membership organisation. We advocate for involved fatherhood but do not approach our work from a fathers’ rights perspective.
