Great Fathers is predominantly a website and resource provider for New Dads with children aged 0 to 2 years old. The New Dad’s Toolkit, and much more, is available from their site. Groups are run from time-to-time, as well as one-on-one Dad support.

• How to stop a baby crying
• How to get your baby to sleep
• Sex, pregnancy & beyond
• How to play with an infant
• Will you be a Dad like your Dad was to you?
• Your relationship now that you’re parents
• Beauty and the breast (feeding)
• Government assistance for families
• Depression in Mums and Dads
• The birth
• Money & how to save on baby costs

Groups are run as required. Primarily, this is a service providing the resources for others to use.
