Meet the team

My name is Tunde, I am a Londoner, I have an energetic baby boy and a baby girl on the way. I am the first London based Dad Matters coordinator, I will be working in the Islington Borough (which is convenient because I am a Gooner). I am looking forward to getting involved, providing support and hopefully making a positive impact.
