Waitakere Focus on Fathering Week

Elaine Dyer, Promoting Great Parenting says, “Sadly, in recent times it is not unusual to open the papers and read yet more disturbing stories that break the heart of any concerned parent. Fathers and step fathers get pretty tough press when things go wrong. So we looked at how we could improve support for fathering. All fathering is important! Come and join us in some great Waitakere fathering activities”

“Although we all know that the father roles are important, if you asked your average person why, they would probably be hard pressed to tell you” says Chris Davidson CEO of Henderson based Man Alive. “We recognise that fathers need good support, to feel valued, and be given attention, in more ways than just the times when the things are tough going.”

This week is supported by Ministry Social Developments SKIP project. Waitakere City Council. Te Korowai Manaaki Promoting Great Parenting. Barnados. Sport Waitakere. Man Alive. Waipareira Trust. Health West. Big Buddy. Unitec. Te Tari Puna O Aotearoa and Change Works.
