For Dads, By Dads

For Dads, By Dads is an eleven-week support programme aimed at helping new and expectant dads with children up to the age of 18 months in a safe environment.

The programme will feature weekly workshops and talks, covering a wide range of subjects to support dads on their parenting journey. Some of the workshops include:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Midwife and health visitor information
  • Psychology
  • Gambling and gaming

For Dads, By Dads has been devised following research by a number of organisations, including Fathers Outreach, Tidy Butt, Gwent Psychology, Recoveries 4 All and Newport County in the Community.

They found men benefited from having a safe space where they can ask questions and learn about themselves and their children as they start their journey of being a dad. The support groups will help them prepare for the change in their life that a child will bring.

After completing the programme, dads will be given an opportunity to engage with local community groups, clubs and forums suitable for their needs.

A maximum of 30 spaces will be allocated for the programme.

To be able to take part in you will need to complete the booking form here.
