4Dads

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 Supporting Dads: An open drop-in group where fathers can chat about taking care of themselves and their family over a relaxed BBQ.
  • Workshops: We offer workshops for fathers on a range of topics, including ‘Tuning into Teens’ and ‘Child-Focused Tools’.
  • Dads Information and Referral Service: One-on-one support to assist fathers to navigate the various resources available to them for their personal growth and parenting abilities.

You can also book a Dads one-on-one session on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays at no cost. Located at 21 George Street, Mandurah. Call 61640619 or email 4families.mandurah@relationshipswa.org.au

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