Working with dads

Support for Fathers has been talking to dads, families and support services about what dads want from these services, how dads access supports, what’s working well and what’s not working.

Right now, there is a great opportunity for more positive work to be done. Support services are looking to offer more for dads and dads are seeking more information about their parenting role.

Our Professionals’ Toolkit is a practical guide for support services working with dads and families with the aim of improving opportunities for dads to access support services and, support service approach to working with dads.

We have compiled a national list of dads programs so support services can find out what’s happening in their area and find inspiration to start something of their own.

We have also put together a list of the important frameworks, guidelines and toolkits that might be useful in your programs and practice.
