Why we do it

Political and societal focus on the needs of children, parents and fathers ebbs and flows according to policy, public opinion and events in the media. To this end, the needs of the diverse range of fathers and communities are not always reflected.  Additionally, many civil society organisations, academic institutions etc develop valuable research that fails to impact on current policy, practice and thinking.  Governments often launch initiatives to address particular issues (such as the ‘Troubled Families’ programme, CANparent classes, childcare vouchers or the ‘bedroom tax’) without ‘joining up’ policies or locating initiatives within a sustainable long-term framework that takes fathers into consideration at all.
