Parenting NI - Dads Project

The Dads Project supports dads in Northern Ireland who are separating, separated or currently involved within the courts service. The Dads Project promotes dads being engaged and involved in their children's lives. This project will help you to develop more confidence in your parenting ability and to build positive connections with other dads in a similar position in your community.

An element of the Dads Project is to support single/separated mums through the provision of a ‘Parenting Apart Programme’ so that they too feel better informed as to how best to support their children during and after a separation.

The Dads Project aims to;

  • Provide services to empower and support separated dads
  • Provide dads with knowledge, information and choices
  • Promote children's rights to having access to both parents
  • Promote the importance of children having an ongoing relationship with their dad
  • Influence policy change to ensure dads are considered on an equal basis to mothers
  • Educate professionals about the importance of ongoing engagement with dads
