Dad’s Group Inc (DGI) is a not-for- profit community organisation committed to connecting new Dads, thereby improving men’s health, preventing family violence and reducing isolation and suicide. We partner with sponsors, councils and community organisations, to start and support new Dads Groups in different suburbs, through events that allow new fathers to meet.
DGI was started by Tom and Kate Docking who discovered in 2014 there was limited to no support for new fathers at a national level. They designed a scalable program for new dads to connect with other local dads: a bit similar to mum’s groups.
You can find the current group locations on our website https://dadsgroup.org/find-dads-group/
DGI also work with councils, Maternal Child Health, and community organisations to enhance capacity within the organisation/council and local community, to engage new and expecting fathers through the DGI training programs.
