The Fatherhood Institute

The Fatherhood Institute is one of the most respected fatherhood organizations in the world. A registered UK charity (number 1075104), our work focuses on policy, research and practice.

Our vision is of a society in which there’s a great dad for every child – a society that:

  • gives all children a strong and positive relationship with their father and any father-figures
  • supports both mothers and fathers as earners and carers, and
  • prepares boys and girls for a future shared role in caring for children.
  • In working towards this vision we:
  • collate, participate in and publicize research
  • lobby for legal and policy changes
  • help public services, employers and others become more father-inclusive, and
  • work directly with families.
