It's not only about dads. Stronger families and communities mean brighter futures for our children.

The Fathering Project positively impacts fathering behaviour and fathers’ engagement with children through evidence-rich programs and resources that engage, equip and support fathers, families, schools, employers and community organisations.

10 More Minutes: Make quality time a priority

Research shows that quality time with dad contributes to emotional well-being, improves learning and academic results, boosts self-esteem, and even enhances cognitive development. It’s not just about being present; it’s about being present with purpose. It doesn’t matter how old your child is, whether they are a toddler or a teen – quality time is important to them.

Being a dad is a journey, and “10 More Minutes” is a reminder that every minute counts.

How you can help

Your donation is being used to transform the lives of children, fathers and families.

We believe the true impact of having confident and engaged Dads will be felt not just at home but across communities and society as a whole. Supporting fathers and father figures to be the best they can be means children with happier, healthier futures. With the generous support of our donors and sponsors, The Fathering Project will help to improve the lives of children today and for generations to come.

It means we can provide every father, or father-figure, the tools to engage with their children and to help them thrive.
