Sure Start Children's Centres
Did you know? Your local Sure Start Children’s Centre Programme offers parenting advice and support to fathers! This could include one to one parenting support, attending free groups with your child/children to support their development, support to manage behaviour or to simply get to know other local parents and children. If you would like support or want to know more, speak to your health visitor or professional, phone the Family Information Service on 0116 305 6545 or Click Here
One of the things that we found out while we were working on the "Becoming Dad" project was that young dads and dads-to-be can sometimes feel as if support services are aimed at women.
We're working with partner agencies to make sure all dads feel welcome to access support. Watch out for the "Dads are welcome here!" postcards appearing on noticeboards near you!
