OPFS Edinburgh Dads’ Clubs

If you are a single father or father with regular contact with your children, we have 2 weekly groups in Edinburgh that offer:

  • Activities & Saturday outings for you and your children
  • Opportunities for children to make new friends and for you to meet other lone fathers
  • Support and information around issues that affect you

What are the Dads’ Clubs?

The 2 Dads’ Clubs organise FREE activities and outings each Saturday for single fathers and their young children, including men who only see their children for part of the time.

We do a range of a different activities each week matched to the age and interests of your children.

You can not only have fun with your kids, but find affordable and free things to do in the Edinburgh area that you can use in the future.

You get the chance to meet other men who have similar experiences of bringing up children on their own.

Is it for me?

You need to come with your son or daughter (between the ages of 0-16 yrs). Fathers of all ages take part. It can be intimidating to come to a group for the first time, but our staff are particularly good at helping new families settle in and might be able to help with transportation initially.

Is other help available?

We are an independent charity with a lot of experience of the issues facing lone fathers. OPFS also runs a free phone helpline (0808 801 0323) which can give detailed advice on a range of problems such as legal matters, welfare benefits, child support and housing. We also help fathers during the week with issues that might require more time or privacy.

We run our groups in conjunction with Gilmerton Early Years Centre in the South of the city, part of a network of Council-run centres supporting families with young children across Edinburgh. In the North, we also work alongside Dr Bell’s Family Centre, a charity who supports families with young children in Leith.
