New funding for FNF Scotland work on parenting

 Families Need Fathers Scotland will receive new funding over the next two years as a strategic partner of the Scottish Government.  We have also been successful in a funding application to the Big Lottery, in partnership with Parent Network.

The new government funding was announced by Children's Minister Aileen Campbell at the end of a Scottish Parliament debate on 7th May about the work of Dads Rock, the musical playgroup for dads.  It will be used for work on supporting parenting by separated fathers by developing new support materials and training. 

We will also be working with other organisations to ensure that they include consideration of non-resident parents in training programmes.  A good example of this is the work of Stepping Stones North Edinburgh, who now run a support group for young fathers "Dads Matter" alongside their "Mellow Bumps" group for young mothers.
