What is the Tower Hamlets Dads’ Network?

Tower Hamlets Dads’ Network supports and encourages dads and male carers to strengthen relationships with their children through positive parenting and play. Men with parental responsibilities are welcome to join the Network and meet with other male carers and their children at our ‘Dads’ Play Day’ events that take place at various venues during the year. Network members will also receive updates about national and local information in connection with family life and parenting and have opportunities for developing their parenting skills.

Why should I get involved?

The relationship between dads and their children is very important and they have a vital role to play whether they live with their children or apart. The Network provides opportunities for dads and other male carers to join their children in free activities and have fun and learn together.

Who can join?

Male parents or carers with a child from birth – 19 years (or up to 25 years for those with special educational needs), who live in the borough or have a child attending a school or college in Tower Hamlets. Male representatives from other Tower Hamlets parent groups and forums.
