Sharing the experience learnt from the evaluation of the Caring Dads: Safer Children programme
Caring Dads: Safer Children is a programme for fathers who have ongoing contact with their children but who have been domestically abusive. It uses the participants’ positive role as a father to motivate them to examine and change their behaviour.
Some fathers may be resistant to engage with services due to their previous experiences. A major challenge is how to encourage these fathers to stay with the programme. So we asked some practitioners to share their tips on what works to engage fathers.
