Everyone copes with situations differently and see things differently, including men and women.

Through our work in supporting parents we recognize that everyone copes with situations differently and see things differently, including men and women. Our family support service aims to ensure that dads are given time and space to meet with each other, talk about their experiences and to build up their support networks and coping skills.

As a society there's a pressure on Dads to be strong, to be the one who's holding things together” Ann Lappin, Family Support Team Leader
