This project aims to empower and support dads from black and minority ethnic (BAME) communities within Aspley, Bulwell, Arboretum and Hyson Green.

Enabling them to support their children through:
•    knowledge 
•    activities
•    emotional engagement with their children from pregnancy onwards 

Each session incorporates three key elements: 
· Stay and play
· Relationship-building activities 
· DadsTalk, a 30-minute session on a Talk Show / podcast via radio (encouraging more open conversations with Fathers)
