Young Dads

Having previously worked alongside the Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Team on other similar projects, Leeds Rhinos Foundation developed the Young Dads programme after it was identified a need for additional support for young teenage dads aged 16+ across the city.

This is a 10 week project which will support young dads through a transitional process. The aim of the course is to increase resilience and self- esteem, provide practical and emotional support, especially around fatherhood.

Focusing on areas such as

  • Resolving barriers that prevent you from being a dad
  • Healthy relationships
  • Recognising changes during pregnancy
  • Child development
  • Parenting skills and a baby's needs
  • Breastfeeding
  • Relationship changes after the birth
  • What it means to be a dad
  • Contraception and STIs
  • Substance misuse
