Dads' Night Out
This group is not currently active but we can certainly understand why a group of dads might want to meet up, maybe for a beer and curry, every so often. Perhaps you might know someone interested in volunteering to be the Dads' Night Out Co-Ordinator!
Other Dads Events
Dad are very welcome to many other NCT events including:
- Coffee groups
- Nearly New Sales
- Bumps and Babies
- Tots and Toddlers
- Babbinos & Cappucinos
We regularly update our Facebook group about these meetups, so please join the group for up-to-date information!
Dads are warmly invited to write for our branch's quarterly newsletter!
If you are interested in writing an article - it doesn't have to be long, or brilliant, just a small contribution to our branch newsletter - please email our Newsletter Editor. It's always interesting to hear from a Dads perspective and in the past the articles have been very amusing!
We have a collection of books available for alll parents to borrow and use. Please see the Branch Library section for our current list of books and how to borrow them www.nct.org.uk/branches/wokingham/branch-library
Dads on the Web
We hate to generalise, but men tend to like their information in a different format to women. There are some useful websites out there that provide resources on birth, pregnancy and early fatherhood from the dad’s perspective – here are some to get you started (most contain links to other relevant sites too).
- www.dad.info Stated aim: to give dads a free and permanent source of the information they're likely to need - from pregnancy, birth and babies to financial, legal and education info - from a dad's perspective.
- homedad.org.uk A support group dedicated to helping dads who are staying at home to bring up their children.
- www.babycentre.co.uk/pregnancy/dads Lots of resources for expectant dads, including birth stories from the dad’s perspective, and links to other relevant websites.
- www.fatherhoodinstitute.org A charitable organization that among other things collates and publishes international research on fathers, fatherhood and different approaches to engaging with fathers by public services and employers.
