As much as new mums need support, advice and access to information, fathers do too.

Through antenatal classes, parenting sessions, playgroups and other events, Centacare’s Dad’s Business team prepares young men for fatherhood.

Young dads and a skilled male worker meet to discuss their expectations, hopes, anxieties and build their knowledge around birth and early childhood development.

The program is funded through Communities for Children Plus, Playford, under the Australian Government’s Family Support Program.

Services provided

The program offers a range of activities which recognise the value of fathers in family and children’s lives. The focus is on strengthening fathers’ capacity to parent, within a community-building framework.

Many Dad’s Business program activities are delivered within group or community event settings. We provide information, referral and support to Playford families, and have a particular commitment to Aboriginal fathers and children.
