Dad's Rock

We aim to improve outcomes for children by supporting families throughout Scotland. 89% of UK men will experience fatherhood. Children have better outcomes in life when all parents are actively involved in their upbringing. We welcome ALL Dads/Male carers from families of all shapes and sizes, any nationality and including gay, trans and non-binary Dads at our groups and activities.
