ONLINE! FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES Our Dads Rock Academy project provides weekly music lessons for young people aged 7+ and their families. It allows families to learn together and to be part of a musical community.
WE ARE SUPPORTING YOUNG DADS, AND THEIR FAMILIES OVER THE PHONE AND ON ONLINE Our Edinburgh based Young Dads project provides 1:1 mentoring to support young dads, aged 25 or under. Becoming a parent can be daunting for anyone. For young men without family support, that may be compounded at a time of setting up a first home, finding work, learning to manage finances, and handle other new pressures of life.
In these times of increased restrictions, dark Scottish nights and winter chills we’re hoping to encourage folks to check-in with their buddies and ask how they’re doing. And what better way to celebrate International Tea Day on Tuesday 15th December than by having a #BrewWithYourBuddy?
We are offering online training, a dads' WhatsApp group, a free SMS support service for new parents, a Facebook group and DADx series of talks for dads' and families' workers, along with our directory and sign posting services. We have also developed a new resource for perinatal health professionals to support new dads through lockdown.
Our 2021 dads' survey shows why we must challenge the structures that stop dads engaging meaningfully with their children.
