Work undertaken with fathers is vital for children and their families. Fathers are often marginalised by services and therefore it is key that services like this are available to support them and assist with their rights as parents.

My organisation specialises in providing Anger Management treatment. We receive about 350 referrals per year from the NHS for this area of Scotland. Many of the men we deal with have been in trouble with the law due to their anger and we know that a lot of them had poor conections with their fathers. On many occasions we find thay the anger they display in adulthood has clear roots in their childhood. These men would have been hugely helped by a father who could have been a role-model but instead they received poor parenting from fathers involving neglect, emotional and physical abuse and abandonment. From the experience of working with these men and from their own testimony that good parenting from fathers would have made a huge positive difference to them we have clear evidence of the importance of such a service as this. Families, are torn apart by fathers who do not provide care for partners and children and initiatives which address this provide a valuable service to familes, children and society.

It's really important that fathers are supported in taking an active and positive role in their children's lives
