Aberdeen dads learning to be better parents

A support group dedicated to dads in Aberdeen is breaking down barriers to offer help, advice and education for fathers as they bid to become better parents.


Dads Work was established in Aberdeen several years ago and continues to go from strength to strength providing a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment for fathers in the city.

The group is comprised of dads who have been referred by the city's social work team in order to provide them with a suitable support framework to be better parents.

As well as offering support Dads Work was also created in a bid to beat the stigma attached to agencies engaging with men in a workshop environment.

Aberdeen City Council senior support worker Ron Bird, who helps lead the group, said:

"We try to build confidence, develop parenting skills, enhance the quality of care dads offer their children, and help the dads attending into education or employment if that is what is required."

"We provide a safe and supportive environment for the dads to explore their concerns and worries about being fathers. The strength of Dads Work is that it provides a support network for a group of guys who would otherwise feel left out of mainstream groups."
