DADx - Lockdown 2 Dads Survey Results

DADx - Lockdown 2 Dads Survey Results

What did dads tell us about life during Lockdown II? And as we plan for COVID recovery how should employers and service providers who work with children & families respond?


It has been a year since COVID-19 became a household name and the First Minister warned Scots that we were facing "the biggest challenge of our lives". In June we reached out to dads across Scotland to capture a snapshot of what life had been like during the first lockdown and published the results on Fathers Day 2020.

As we live through a second national lockdown we launched a follow up survey to find out how things have changed. We asked dads to tell us about: their home and work life; their mental health and wellbeing; their family relationships; and if they want to change the way they parent in the future. As we begin to plan for COVID recovery how can this evidence help us respond to the opportunities and threats that are emerging?

On Tuesday 30 March at 10am be the first to find out what dads told us as we reveal the results. Then hear from a panel of experts and professionals who work with dads and families as they reflect on the findings and explore how to plan for COVID recovery with this in mind.
