The dads group aim is to connect dads, granddads and carers who have a child with any additional need/disability with or without diagnosis.
We are a collective of dads navigating the SEND system, family life and often work pressures who hold regular, informal monthly meetups for carers based in North Yorkshire.
We hope to arrange activities and events which also includes mums, however, we feel there are many groups and charities focused on supporting mums and there are very few groups with the focus on dads. We also feel that dads voices are under represented within the care community.
Come along for an informal meet up, a soft drink or pint
