About The Fathering Project
Every child in Australia deserves to have an effective father figure.
Physician Professor Bruce Robinson has heard many dying patients’ regrets in his years of practice. This was the starting point for Prof Robinson’s ground-breaking research into fatherhood. What started off with talks and books, has now become a movement. Our work has reached over 45,000 fathers and father figures in WA through engagement with schools, corporate companies, indigenous communities and elite sports teams.
The five main aims of The Fathering Project to help our kids:
- To help fathers realise how important they are in a child’s life.
- To give fathers advice on how to engage with their children.
- To inspire fathers to get involved with their children – become proactive.
- To develop programs and initiatives to assist with and promote the engagement of fathers.
- To utilise research-based evidence to encourage positive change in fathers.
Hear from our Ambassadors...
"We hope you can support or even better join our Big Push ride from Sydney to Canberra, a great ride for a great cause. It’s an opportunity to support the Fathering Project and this could be the start of something wonderful for you and your kids."
"Our hope is that The Fathering Project will make a significant change so that we don’t need to invest so much time trying to rescue people from terrible family violence or dealing with people who’ve committed crimes because they’ve made bad choices. They haven’t done the right thing because they’ve never been taught how to do the right things – if we can change that, we can change a generation. This is why we hope you will get involved in this event and play a part in improving the outcomes for our children."
