Dads Strengthening Dads

Goal - Fathers are well supported in the early years of their child's life

It is well recognised fathers and fathering figures play an important role in a child’s development and well-being.

The role of men is evolving in the family structure and it is vital that they are active participants in their children’s upbringing.

Through community conversation and data from local service providers, social isolation was a prominent factor for fathers. While there are plenty of Playgroups and Mums groups available for women to find a network, it is harder for men to source this type of supportive environment.

Support for dads in parenting and in engaging with their communities was prioritized.

Recent Achievements and Current Focus

Supporting Dads

We have partnered with The Fathering Project and are working across Kwinana, Cockburn, Rockingham and Mandurah to establish Dad’s groups in schools to promote the importance of fathering and increase engagement of fathers in the community

Flip our ‘Hood ‘

This initiative recognises the importance of Dad’s health and well-being as well as encouraging Dad’s to connect with one another and their children.  The project is supported by the City of Cockburn and includes activities in the community, health and well-being support and opportunities for dad to meet new mates and have loads of laughs along the way.
