EFP-image10Working With Men have developed a one and two-day training course for professionals to enable them to deliver our unique Expectant Fathers Programme (EFP).

This participative, practical and stimulating course is designed to help managers, front-line workers and volunteers in children’s centers and other early years and related settings develop father-inclusive services in partnership with fathers themselves.

Expectant Fathers Programme (EFP):
The Expectant Fathers Programme is a birthing and parenting course designed for first-time expectant fathers of newborns who express a need for guidance and support in their role, as well as Young Fathers and Fathers at risk. The programme has been developed in the UK to actively engage men in their children’s lives and was designed with input and guidance from UK fathers.

What the professionals say: “Worth doing, wish I could deliver to all men routinely” “The style and content were spot on” “The facilitator was brilliant, very engaging”
