Father and Child Group
A bi-monthly group for young children and their fathers, which will help the fathers learn skills that will allow them to support their child through his/her development
The groups, of eight participating fathers & child pairs, will be set up according to the age of the children.
The sessions will be run by two tutors who will guide fathers in helping their children and who will ensure a supportive and positive environment.
