Dad's Programs & Services
CPS recognises the important role played by fathers in the lives of children. We also understand how the role of fathers in families is changing – and this brings new opportunities and challenges for men as well as for those who work with families.
Caring Dads combines elements of parenting, fathering, family violence and child protection practice to enhance the safety and well-being of children.
