Cattanach Dads Projects June Meeting

Cattanach Dads Projects June Meeting

This full day event will be split into three parts.

The morning will be lead by our hosts Home-Start Glasgow North, they will talk a bit about their service and we will get a chance to have a look at the Children's Wood. Summer in Scotland means that could mean flip- flops or wellies - so have a look at the forecast to make sure that you are equipt with suitable clothes & footwear.  

After the break we will hear from Ryan - who runs a dads group in Home-Start Glasgow South. Then Chris will give you a taster of the "How are you Dad?" pilot we have been rolling out, and fill you in on the impact it has been having, and what we hope will happen next.

After lunch we will be welcoming stand up comedian William Clark, who's kids provided him with the impetus to beat drug addiction and turn over a new leaf after a stint in prison. To round up the day you will have a chance to reflect on any challenges that you face with your dads work and use the group to find solutions. We will be taking a look at inclusion and integration and what we should be striving for with our dads work.
