Delivering father-inclusive parenting services


Our 2014 research review with Yale University found that a ‘game change’ is needed in the commissioning, design and delivery of parenting interventions, to make them more accessible to fathers, and thus more effective in terms of child outcomes.

Designed with this in mind, and building on our Fathers and Parenting Interventions: What Works? research briefing, this course will help managers, front-line workers and volunteers develop and deliver parenting services that work with dads as well as mums.

The course:

  • explains the importance of gender-differentiated approaches in parenting support
  • assesses the evidence on the design and content of parenting programmes
  • explores what the research tells us about strategies for recruiting and retaining fathers, and
  • supports participants to develop practical approaches to delivering father-inclusive parenting services.
