MensCraft – Dads Onside

DadsOnside offers support for dads experiencing challenges in relation to their role as fathers.  (Support is for all dads, including stepdads, adoptive dads, expectant dads and those in a fathering role.)  We cover the whole of Norfolk, providing tailored one-to-one support for men who might be experiencing challenges relating to contact, for new and expectant dads and for dads where there may be concerns about harsh or abusive behaviours.

As well as one-to-one support, we offer peer support groups and the Caring Dads Programme for dads who are exhibiting harsh or abusive behaviours.  Additionally, we signpost and refer to other agencies and the other programmes and activities which MensCraft deliver.
