Hands-on dads: we know how important they are…we know they’re out there… but how can we best support them?
The Fatherhood Institute has been advocating for involved fathers since 1999, and to mark our 20th birthday we’ve organised 21st Century Fathers: Creating the Space for Involved Fatherhood: a national conference for anyone with a professional interest in dads.
Catch up with the latest research from around the world… take part in stimulating workshops with world-class policymakers and practitioners… hear from the new generation of dad activists…
Amongst others, 21st Century Fathers will feature:
- broadcaster Mim Shaikh, star of the hit BBC3 documentary Finding Dad
- family therapist Gill Gorrell Barnes, author of Staying Attached: Fathers and Children in Troubled Times
- leading experts including the Fatherhood Institute’s very own Adrienne Burgess and co-founder Duncan Fisher OBE
- plus an array of dad activists campaigning for better mental health services, parental leave and dad-to-dad networking.
There will also be sessions on Fathers in the Workplace and Dads and Daughters, with contributions from the Fawcett Society and Women in Sport.
