Do you live in Mandurah or Pinjarra? Do you need help to strengthen your relationship with your child? 

Contrary to popular belief, we don’t always know automatically what to do as a parent. Join other Dads of children aged up to 15 years to build skills to assist your child to be positive, flexible and assertive. Research has shown that being a warm and supportive, involved and engaged father impacts positively on your child’s mental wellbeing.

How can we help you?

The 4Dads program offers information, education, referrals and support for fathers of children up to 18 years in the Mandurah and Pinjarra areas.

  • Dads & Kids Breakfast Club A free interactive breakfast club for Dads and their kids, and to meet other Dads in the area.
  • Plagroup 4DADS: This playgroup is open to all dads and has FIFO and shift worker dads in mind, offering weekly sessions you can attend anytime you are home.
  • Dads Counselling Sessions: Book a Dads 1-1 no cost counselling session by calling or emailing us.

Call 6164 0619 or email 4families.mandurah@relationshipswa.org.au to obtain more information or to register your interest.

This Children and Parent Support Service initiative is funded by the Department of Social Services.
