Being Dad groups are for expectant/new dads or men with parenting responsibility for babies and young children up to two years old.

The free five-week groups help men learn more about looking after themselves, managing the changes and challenges, supporting partners and offers a chance to meet other dads.

“I would like to thank you for the opportunity to part take in the Being Dad group.

I found the whole thing brilliant!

Nev and his team had fresh and raw, hard hitting informative sessions. Very open to talk about any subjects relating to a vast spectrum in being a dad…

The simplicity and realistic nature of how the group was formatted really worked for me, and I know that others got a lot out from it.”
