Strong Fathers Strong Families

This program promotes the important role of dads, Pops and Uncles to be healthy role models and engage fully in the child’s life as early as possible. The aim being to improve the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander male’s ability to contribute positively to the health and well being of their children. Dads and male role models have a special and important role in children’s lives, for example a child whose dad is actively involved in their life and knows their friends, their likes and dislikes and is interested in how they spend their day is likely to experience better development and achieve milestones than those whose Dad do not take a special interest in their lives. This initiative is funded by the OATSIH and Carbal thanks the department for entrusting Carbal to deliver this program to benefit our community.
