Father Inclusive Practice
We understand dads want to feel more involved. To achieve this, alongside our daily work, we have two working groups:
- The Father Inclusive Practice Group (FIP), a group of professionals from early-years services in Nottingham. The group is led by SSBC and aims to improve services.
- The Fathers Advisory Group, dads and professionals. The group work to co-produce all projects and service designs.
There's more support and free groups too!
