Being Dad

As with most good things in life, becoming a father can create challenges. If you’re a Bromley dad who could do with some company or support, our Tuesday night Being Dad group is for you.

Our free Being Dad group helps men learn more about looking after themselves, managing the changes and challenges of parenthood and supporting their partner. The sessions also offer an opportunity to meet other dads.

Who is Being Dad for?

Bromley Being Dad groups are free for men who live in Bromley borough and:

  • Are expectant dads
  • Are new dads with a child under two years old or
  • Are male caregivers such as a grandparent of young children up to the age of two.

Stay-at-home, working, adoptive and foster dads and step-fathers are all welcome.

“I would like to thank you for the opportunity to part take in the Being Dad group. I found the whole thing brilliant!

“Nev and his team had fresh and raw, hard-hitting, informative sessions. Very open to talk about any subjects relating to a vast spectrum of being a dad.

“The simplicity and realistic nature of how the group was formatted really worked for me, and I know that others got a lot out of it.”

A dad on completing Being Dad groups

Topics covered will include:

  • Understanding your parenting identity/style
  • Supporting your partner in your new parental role

Plus proven techniques for managing stress, tiredness and worry.

The groups are led by men with their own personal experience of looking after themselves as dads or male caregivers to babies and young children.
