Who Let The Dads Out

Who Let The dads Out is aimed at trying to help dads to play and to build up close relationships with their children.

The play and activity sessions are open to anyone to just drop in. We provide 2 hours of activity focused play time for dads, granddads, or male carers, and their kids. If you are interested in attending just come along, no need to book in advance, all visitors and new families are welcome.


We give dads a free and permanent source of the information they’re likely to need – from pregnancy, birth and babies to financial, legal and education info – from a dad’s perspective. A new home for dads on the web.

Rochdale Borough Council Parenting Courses

Our courses can help you to find new ways and ideas of how to work with your children, to problem solve, reduce stress and address behavioural problems. You’ll be encouraged to build upon your existing skills and learn from other parents and carers, allowing you to see that you’re not on your own.

The courses are delivered throughout the year in Rochdale, Heywood and Middleton during term time, with morning, afternoon and evening sessions.​
