The Fathers Group does not and cannot guarantee the following:
- Immediate voluntary work or a training placement
- Access to your children, where denied access is in place
- Cannot guarantee any changes if the individual does not wish to change
- The ‘Father’s Group’ is not an instant fix it, but works with father’s on an individual and corporate basis, with their own interactive engagement skills.
The fathers group has a diverse ethnic mix which may include European, Asian, Caribbean, African, Mediterranean and many others.
The fathers group promotes pro social modelling across the board and encourages men to maintain a good standard of behaviour in all they do by setting ground rules for each session. The group will not tolerate any adverse behaviour pertaining to race, age, sexual orientation or disability but promotes equality. I can therefore guarantee the safety of each group member in this regard. If any group member were to display any such behaviour, this member would be removed from the group, dealt with on a one to one with myself and given the opportunity to alter their behaviour and rejoin the group.
The Service I Provide
My aim is to encourage fathers/parents carers to support their families and children’s learning by taking education into the wider community and into Schools/Children Centres across the City.
The training package for fathers meets the requirement linked to Health, Safeguarding and Education Achievement, in the education skills sector.
I work towards empowering fathers that the knowledge gained through the training activities are essential to the educational needs of the children and families.
I work closely with other agencies to provide additional support and further training to fathers.
I deliver an informal parenting programme. The aims are to raise awareness of building positive relationship with children and families. I also raise discussions, set homework task for fathers and children to engage and enjoy. The programme reflects the negative and positive aspects of communication within families and the objective is to improve better communication and bring fathers, children and families close together.
The course will identify their own parenting skills around feelings, needs, communication and listening skills towards positive parenting.
I also deliver a Fire Safety and Bullying awareness programme, and raise debate on various news article topics around social and economic affairs relating to real life experience with the fathers.
I provide data for each setting as evidence of the fathers group work portfolio. This includes case studies, risk assessment, age, ethnicity, attendance ratio via pie chart data, registration, evaluation forms and assessing group impact, and practical home work task between father and child with evidence based evaluation and more......
I also facilitate training and activity sessions for the fathers group and their children such as Pottery sessions, Arts & Crafts, Drawing and Painting, Cooking and community trips and more......
