The Fatherhood Institute is the UK’s fatherhood think-and-do-tank. We are a registered charity (number 1075104) and we:

  • Collate, publish and mobilise international research on fathers and their impact on children and mothers
  • Report on and develop approaches to engaging with fathers mainly in the health, education and family sectors
  • Help shape national and local policy to ensure a father-inclusive approach
  • Inject research evidence on fathers, fatherhood and co-parenting into national debates about parenting and parental roles
  • Lobby for changes in law, policy and practice to dismantle barriers to UK fathers’ care of infants and children
  • Help mothers and fathers in the UK and internationally balance their ‘cash and care’ responsibilities and co-operate productively as a ‘parenting team’
  • Are the  leading provider in the UK (and to an extent internationally) of training, consultancy and publications on father-inclusive practice
