Dads’ Hub

Sometimes it might feel that a lot of parenting advice and groups are aimed at mums, but we know that dads are just as important.

Dads play a really important role in helping their children to be happy and healthy, and we want to help Blackpool dads be the best dads they possibly can be. Not only do our groups give you the skills and confidence to be a great dad, they also help you meet other local dads who are going through the same things as you are.

If you’re a dad or male role model and you want to find out more about services and groups that are available to you, please contact Owen on 07710 144828 or

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

Dad’s Shed is a community woodwork programme that takes place in Revoe Community Garden. The weekly sessions enable and upskill 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.
