New Young Fathers Forum

Our free weekly drop in forum for young fathers begins Wednesday 27 September. Sessions are held at Jigsaw and run from 2 pm - 4 pm.

"I’m keen to provide a space/platform to bring together the groups of young fathers I work with who don't meet the Caring Dads criteria, and young fathers I meet sporadically during outreach such as the drop-in sessions I attend at Brook on Thursdays," says St Michael's young father practitioner Arnold Sarfo-Kantanka.

Summer Trips

Throughout August, we will be hosting summer activities every Friday over a period of six weeks for young parents and their children.

These include: 

Challenging Stereotypes: a photography exhibition from our young parents

In partnership with London Connected Learning Centre, our young parents have spent the past eight weeks taking part in a photography programme. Members of our weekly group for young parents and their children, which meets every Friday in Brockwell Park were invited to attend the extensive course, aiming to develop their skills in digital technology, whilst creating a project that holds meaning to them.

Young Parents Group resumes Friday 6th Jan

Our free, friendly group for young parents starts again on the first Friday in January, Friday 6th.

If you're a young mum or dad, bring your child or children and come along to meet us and parents like you at Brockwell Park One O'Clock Club between 10am and 2pm. You'll have a great time, make new friends and your child will have plenty of toys and other children to play with in a beautiful, safe indoor and outdoor space. 

We also prep and share a delicious hot meal each week! 

One O'Clock Club Positive Parenting Tree

The fabulous Positive Parenting Tree created by parents and children at our weekly Friday group for young parents at Brockwell Park's One O'Clock Club over several weeks.

The young parents explored the impact of both positive and negative childhood experiences on their own parenting. They looked at the skills and tools they need for positive, healthy parenting and how to break cycles that could hold their child back.
