The Fathering Families Project is a Big Lottery funded Project aimed at supporting those who parent pre-birth to 12 year old children. Focusing on men who fulfil the role as a social father. A Social Father is a man who has a biological or non-biological responsibility for children and can include a

  • Grandfather
  • Uncle
  • Brother
  • Cousin
  • Or other male person
They fulfill this fathering role within a family unit often in the absence of a biological father.

Our Formal Partner within the project is Fermanagh Women's Aid, who will provide bespoke support activities to mothers and children who have experienced domestic violence and who are now connected to or living with a social father. Mothers and children, through Fermanagh Women's Aid, will be able to access elements which focus on bringing the family unit closer together.
