The Lodge: monthly peer support sessions for dads – next session on Thursday 5th October

The Lodge are our monthly online peer support sessions for dads. The sessions are an informal get together, on zoom. They are super chilled and a chance to meet and talk to other new and like minded dads.

By the way, we won’t be covering any of the practical parenting stuff, like how to feed and burp – this is all about YOU, as a man and as a dad.

The next session is on Thursday 5th October and you can sign up here.

The October edition will feature a talk from Darnell Cadette, a counsellor, who will talk about the impact of social environment on children’s development and what fathers can do to help.

Darnell has had a long career in counselling with young people and journalism so is the perfect person to lead this conversation.

This will be a really interesting event that will look at the intersection of race, class, location and other social issues. Importantly, we will look at how dads can positively influence the social environment to improve outcomes for our children.

The aim of the session is to meet other dads, hear how other people are managing it all, share some of your experiences and have a laugh while doing it!
The sessions are a safe space so we ask all attendees to treat each other with respect, empathy and confidentiality. Our facilitators are experienced and trained and we have safeguarding procedures in place. All this helps to ensure the sessions are productive and enjoyable for everyone.
The peer sessions are monthly and last for 60mins.
The next session is on Thursday 5th October and you can sign up here.
