Caring Dads

Caring Dads is a free service for fathers who live in Wyndham, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melbourne or Moonee Valley, have regular contact with their children and have struggled with anger, worry, frustration and/or violence and who want to be the best Dad they can be.

Dads will develop skills to :

– cope in healthy ways with frustrating situations

– understand how different fathering strategies and choices affect children

– increase awareness of controlling, abusive and neglectful attitudes and behaviours

– be provided with strategies to strengthen and repair their father-child relationship

– have a unique opportunity to connect with other men.

Caring Dads is a manualised early intervention, 17-week group work program developed in Canada and now running in the Inner West Region of Victoria as a partnership between Anglicare-Victoria and IPC Health.
