4Dads

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

 

The 4Dads service is continuing to offer information, education, referrals and support for fathers and male caregivers of children living in the Mandurah and Pinjarra areas during this unprecedented and difficult time.

Our staff are providing support over the telephone, video conferencing or online to clients. In light of community concern and safety, the majority of Relationships Australia WA’s face-to-face services have been paused until we are safely through the COVID-19 crisis.

The events below will be delivered to participants online, please call us to book your place and we will send you details regarding how to join the session.

To book a WebEx event please send your email address nominating the event you wish to join to 4families@relationshipswa.org.au for a WebEx invite and instructions on how to log-in. Alternatively call 61640619 and leave your phone number requesting a return call.

You can book a Dads 1-1 no cost phone counselling session by calling or emailing either of the above.

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 Supporting Dads: A free WebEx interactive group for Dads to chat about taking care of themselves and their family with likeminded men.
  • Workshops: We offer online workshops for fathers on a range of topics. See events below for our upcoming workshops.
  • Dads Information and Referral Service: Book a Dads 1-1 no cost phone counselling session by calling or emailing us..

Call 61640619 or email 4families.mandurah@relationshipswa.org.au to obtain more information or to register your interest.
