Dad Matters is an ambition to change the way dads are thought of by all services involved in the perinatal period and beyond. Dad Matters Warwickshire exists to see all dads in the county happy and content in being a dad. We can provide support for new dads, within the perinatal period, which we consider to be conception to 2 years.
This is a joint project with Barnardos, By Your Side, Home Start South Warwickshire and The Parenting Project.
Dad Matters is designed to help enable dads to:
- Understand how important they are to their baby’s development
- Acknowledge the crucial impact their own mental health has on their baby
- Feel confident and motivated in reaching out for support at the right time and from the right people
Our approach is underpinned by the concept of peer support: families supporting families, dads supporting dads.
