Caring Dads: Safer Children Referrals
Caring Dads: Safer Children is for dads who:
- have been violent towards their partner
- maintain some contact with their child
- recognise their past or current abusive behaviour.
Dads are usually referred to the programme by social services. Other referrals sometimes come from the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS), probation and health services.
Dads can’t join if they’ve been sexually violent towards their partner or child.
Men who attend must give contact details for their current or ex-partner. We contact them to get their views about the impact Caring Dads: Safer Children has made on the lives of them and their children.
If you would like to receive training to deliver the Caring Dads: Safer Children programme in your area, please contact NSPCC development managerr firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to get help from NSPCC services
Sometimes you may be referred to one of our services by someone who already helps you, like a midwife, social worker, teacher or children's centre worker. You can join some of our services yourself, simply by contacting us to see if a place is available.
If you think a service that is available in your area might help you and your family, get in touch to find out more.
