Dad Matters is a Home-Start Project, based in Greater Manchester.

We aim to help dads have successful relationships with their families, and to support dads with anxiety, stress and mental health issues.

We hope to get dads engaged with services that have traditionally been targeted at mums, and to train & support volunteer dads to work with us.

We work directly with services that support Dads, families and especially babies to increase engagement and knowledge across the sector.

We want to make sure dads know how important they are, how to access support when they need it and why it’s essential for baby’s development.

Our team is made up of specialist staff from Home-Start HOST and the Tameside Early Attachment Service (NHS) with links to midwifery, health visiting, mental health services and voluntary sector organisations across Greater Manchester.
