Children and fathers celebrate with a summer BBQ
On the 24th July, nearly 100 children and fathers from our various Us Together groups and Edinburgh Lone Fathers Project came together for a BBQ and some mini Commonwealth Games activities.
We travelled from our projects in Dundee, Edinburgh, Falkirk and North Lanarkshire to Beecraigs Country Park in West Lothian where we enjoyed good food, sunshine and games. Even Spider-Man popped in to entertain the children.
The fathers we work with tell us they get a lot out of meeting other fathers who are in a similar situation. This was one of the reasons we brought all the projects together. This “Peer Support” approach is something we are building on and rolling out across the service.
