As much as young Mums need support – there are also a generation of new Dads who need advice, support and access to good information about the important role they are about to play in their child’s life.

The Dad’s Business delivers a range of fathering activities in the Playford area in a no-pressure environment.  Young Dads come together to discuss their expectations, hopes, anxieties and build their knowledge around birth and the early years with a skilled male worker.

Activities include:

  • antenatal classes facilitated with a health worker, followed by a men-only session to address expectations and concerns around the birth, and their child’s early years
  • follow-up support sessions for fathers with a meal provided at a local community venue where fathers are supported to plan further activities which enhance their connections in a fathering context.
  • small group antenatal work with teenage mothers and fathers which include time for fathers alone
  • large group events which have a family or well-being focus
  • a universal playgroup for fathers
  • parenting sessions for young Mums and Dads and/or Dads who are alone
