Dads R Us Hub
Our Cumbernauld Dads R Us Hub is going from strength to strength.
The Wednesday Hub session includes information on health and wellbeing, family finances, welfare reforms, parenting and the opportunity for the dads to meet other dads for general conversations and pick up some hints and tips on parenting alone.
One to One support outwith the Hub is also provided. Our mentors have been single parents and are aware of the issues and barriers many single dads are face. Single dads taking part have informed us this is an invaluable part of the service. The dads have been supported with housing, legal, hardship and several other matters that have been affecting their lives.
The award of £1200 from the Scottish Government Participatory Budget programme which was hosted by Cornerstone House has been well spent over the holidays by providing the dads and their children with fantastic days out where all the families have had the opportunity to be out and about and take part in numerous activities. Memories and photos from these days out will be collated in a personal memory book for the families, which they themselves will work on.
Crèche, transport costs and light refreshments are provided for all families
