The Fatherhood Institute is the UK's national information centre for fatherhood. It is a charity (reg. no. 1075104) founded by professionals with expertise in social work, in social work, family policy, business development and communications. It exists to support the welfare of children by the positive and active involvement of fathers and male carers in their lives.
It works to encourage debate and challenge attitudes about the roles and responsibilities of men and women in relation to children. It explains to the public the value to children, mothers and fathers of positive relationships between children and their fathers and other male carers and promotes the importance of preparing boys and girls for a future shared role in looking after children.
Their work includes lobbying for changes in policies and practices of government and non-governmental organisations when these limit how men and women fulfil their responsibilities and roles in caring for children.
Expertise and information to child and family organisations on how to help fathers and other male carers to be positively involved in the lives of children and enhance men's positive contribution to family life is also provided.
It does not provide personal advice to individual parents or grandparents
