Supporting young dads' journeys through fatherhood

In June 2012, the Family Strategic Partnership convened a group of leading fathers' organisations and academics to highlight the needs and experiences of young fathers aged 16 to 24 in England, and the joint role of statutory and voluntary services in supporting them. This report illustrates six young fathers' journeys through service provision, based on the experiences of the young men that the steering group organisations work with. The journeys reveal the blockages that can occur when insufficient support is available, and the opportunities that arise when services respond to young fathers effectively.
