Yesterday The Fathering Project celebrated a huge win after receiving a whopping $5.4 million investment from the Liberal government.
The Fathering Project is an organisation that aims to see every child in Australia have an effective father figure. The Fathering Project have populated WA primary schools with dad’s groups where these men can openly and safely talk about their experiences. With the aim to inspire, encourage and support fathers and father figures in our community to be more present and pro-active at every stage of their kids’ life.
This grant means that The Project can roll out their program nation wide and also expand their online digital resource centre so that Aussie fathers (and father figures) will always have some where to go to find advice and support.
98five works closely with The Fathering Project team. We have seen first hand the influence and results their program has on the men we meet throughout our school program. It’s an amazing outcome to see our government recognise the value and importance of The Fathering Project’s work.
