JustforDads was set up in response to dads
asking for quality opportunities to do things with
their children, meet other dads and be
recognised as important people in children’s
lives.
We believe that children deserve opportunities to
play, learn, try new things and spend time with
their dads and that dads benefit from sharing
times with their children when they are the parent

All our activities aim to not only provide dads and
children with the good, fun, affordable activities
that memories are made of, but also to give dads
the chance to meet other dads, and get
information and support for the most important
job of all – being a parent.
JustforDads is open to ALL dads, stepdads and
father figures.
