Dads 4 Life
Dads4Life is a group that aims to build relationships with and support dads with their futures. The group organises different programmes, events and activities that are designed for dads, by dads. They are open to any male carer in Blackpool and work to improve father/child relationships by encouraging shared activities.
FRED (Fathers Reading Every Day) is a weekly programme that encourages dads to read to their children every day to support speech and language development. Reading also helps dads build a strong bond with their children.
Dad’s Shed is a community woodwork programme that takes place in Revoe Community Garden. A local joiner runs the weekly session and upskills dads to create furniture and equipment for Children’s Centres and public spaces. The dad’s recently built a beautiful reading chair which has been donated to Palatine Library.
