The LSCB in B&NES supports the workforce to celebrate and involve fathers in children's lives. In 2012-13 a Celebrating Fatherhood campaign was launched to promote the importance of fathers in children’s lives. The campaign was developed in partnership with a small multi-agency working group which decided to focus attention on how we could raise the profile of men more in children’s lives, based on sound evidence. Our intention was to be inclusive of all men who play a significant role in children’s lives: hence the title Celebrating Fatherhood, rather than the working title of “Year of the Father”.
The associated pages celebrate both the success of the campaign with the tangible difference we have made in combating the main obstacles fathers and male carers still face, as well as more recent achievements and ongoing projects.
