Would you like a Dangerous Dads group in your local town?
We are now expanding Dangerous Dads and setting up fathers’ groups in towns across the UK and internationally.
We have many groups now established, running activities for men with children of all ages, reaching out to fathers and male carers from all sections of the community.
Starting a local Dangerous Dads group might be an easy step for you and you can join The Dangerous Dads Network at any time, paying a small annual membership fee. You’re then ready to roll.
However for many reaching dads may be more of a challenge.
The Dangerous Dads Network works with:
You may well have past experiences of dads groups that once worked but now numbers have dropped.
Dangerous Dads groups have shown that there are ways to reach fathers in fun, inclusive ways, that continue to reach dads year after year. In Totnes, for example, the Children’s Centre outperforms all other Centres in the county, reaching over a third of local dads [compared to a county average of one in five].
In Torbay, just two Dangerous Dads sessions reached more fathers for Action for Children than had been reached in the whole of the previous year.
To help you, we offer a tailored package as each situation is different. The Dangerous Dads Network works with Children’s Centres, partner organisations, community groups, Housing Associations, welfare teams and health workers giving advice and training on reaching fathers.
We also work with clients to advise on funding bids, partnership development and community engagement.
In addition, we have a bank of ideas you can use, and we can help link you to local providers and people who can make your group a success [for example, outdoor learning experts, Forest School leaders, artists, storytellers, land-owners, musicians and scientists].
Contact us and we can talk it over… and of course we are happy to send you references.
