Dad Matters Closed Facebook Groups

Join our Dad Matters Closed Facebook groups…

They are designed and moderated to be a safe space for dads to be and new dads to come for support, to ask those questions that all dads have, offload your worries, ask for support, offer your own experiences and recommend services and organisations that may help.
Experienced dads are also welcome, to help generate and contribute to supporting new dads and their families.
Any dad can join the Dad Matters UK closed group and their  local group.
Join today, and if you’re not a dad please encourage the dads in your life to join us!

Dad Matters UK is looking for Volunteers in each of our areas.

Our volunteers help us to support dads to be and new dads with the transition to fatherhood.

We have a number of opportunities available…

  • Outreach – meeting dads at various venues, speaking to them and distributing resources
  • Dad Chat – facilitating our face to face groups for dads in various situations
  • Online – monitoring, moderating, developing and contributing to our online support groups.
  • Events – facilitating dad and baby events in various venues.
  • Lived Experience – if you have experience of any of the challenges dads face, such as miscarriage or perinatal loss, perinatal mental health issues, supporting a partner through perinatal mental health issues, wellbeing, etc, then we’d love to have you help support our peer support groups
