Kids First and Uniting Regen deliver Caring Dads.

Caring Dads is a group work program for fathers who have physically abused, emotionally abused or neglected their children, have exposed their children to domestic violence, or who are deemed to be at high risk for these behaviours.

The program consists of a 17-week group parenting intervention for fathers, systematic outreach to mothers to ensure safety and freedom from coercion, and ongoing, collaborative case management of fathers. Caring Dads combines elements of parenting, fathering, family violence and child protection practice to enhance the safety and well-being of children.
