Dads Rock - Inspiring Scotland

Dads Rock

We pair new and expectant Dads with highly trained peer support volunteers, who are more experienced Dads themselves, for mental and emotional support during the life changing transition of becoming a parent. Support is offered remotely over phone calls or Zoom for 6 weekly chat sessions. It is open to Dads all across Scotland throughout their perinatal time period (the time from when you first learn you are going to be a Dad and up to your baby’s first birthday). Our peer support volunteers can help with a range of parenting issues and help new Dads to build confidence and resilience, and reduce social isolation.
We run monthly free antenatal and parenting workshops (sleep, first aid) for dads and mums, both online and in person (Edinburgh/Glasgow).
Our Young Dad Project supports young men in Edinburgh and Glasgow on a one to one basis, getting to know them and building a programme of support to help give them the skills and confidence to enjoy being a Dad.
