An introduction to Home-Start Glasgow South
While many dads are comfortable in a range of parenting roles and family settings, both within the home and broader community, our research has exposed social norms, role expectations and the gender landscape as a barrier for some Dads in terms of engagement and seeking support when needed. Therefore, a tailored support for dads and dads-to-be has been developed by Home-Start Glasgow South. We are looking to expand this service and recruit a Dads’ Co-ordinator who can challenge these social norms, provide unique invitations ‘in’ for Dads into our existing groups and services and thereby support the progress of this established work from antenatal through perinatal and beyond.
Key responsibilities will include:
Work in coordination with the existing Dads Coordinator to support dads to be via Glasgow’s first Dads’ Antenatal workshops in partnership with NHSGGC Midwifery services.
Understand the needs of Dads – as an individual and as a parent/to-be.
Provide person centred support for Dads and their families, building on the success of the Home-Start Glasgow South Dads’ model.
