We recognise that community services can often appear to be geared around the needs of Mothers. Dads can feel left out. However, we feel that fathers have an equally important role to play with their children and have needs of their own - after all children don't come with “instructions” and a parent's role can be very demanding for both Mums and Dads.
So Dads, if you would like to find out more about how you can get involved, or you have ideas about how we can be supporting Dads in general, please let us know.
We know that sometimes dads are not available in the week to spend time with their children, because of work commitments, time constraints, access arrangements. This is why we are opening Earlswood Infant and Nursery School once a month to provide a place where fathers can spend time with their children in a relaxed, secure environment.
Why not come along and meet other dads, share your experiences and have fun with the kids!
This group called D.A.D.S (Dads and Daughters/Sons) runs on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9.30am - 11.30am. Bacon sandwiches and toast provided!
Please speak to Marie King if you are interested in helping our Dad's group become a success. We are particularly interested in finding male volunteers to help us run the group.
Dads Group Dates:
14th February 2015
14th March 2015
11th April 2015
We're here to get information to dads, so that they can get the best for their kids.
The information and services available for 'parents' are usually aimed at mums and, as we've found ourselves, it's all too easy for dads and dads-to-be to end up feeling sidelined.
We're a new company set up to change that - to give dads a free and permanent source of the information they're likely to need - from pregnancy, birth and babies to financial, legal and education info - from a dad's perspective. A new home for dads on the web.
