Men’s Network Wins Funding For Flagship Dads Project

The Men’s Network has won £40,000 of funding for its flagship dads project – Dads Connect – which aims to deliver our vision of making Brighton & Hove the worlds’ most father friendly city.

The Dads Connect project – which we piloted with the help of £1,000 funding from Novas  Scarman (now People Can) in 2011 – helps improve the quality and quantity and dads’ involvement in their children’s lives through community events, support groups and a variety 1-2-1 advice and support for men at all stages of fatherhood.

We anticipate that the funding from The Tudor Trust will enable The Men’s Network to employ its first paid member of staff to working with dads in our city over the next two years.

We are delighted to have won the backing of The Tudor Trust who have an excellent track record of of supporting innovative grassroots projects and have funded a number of men’s projects over the years including Men Get Eating Disorders Too, Abused Men In Scotland, The ManKind Initiative, Mankind UK, The Men’s Room and Working With Men.

We will be announcing further details of how we will use this funding to develop our Dads Connect  project in the coming weeks.
