Dads’ Cafe 30th October
Located at Repton Connect Community Centre, we are back in person at our Dads’ Cafe. It’s a great opportunity to sit amongst like minded parents that are going through similar struggles around separation and or child access and to seek comfort in knowing that there are others that understand what you are going through. With our mentors at hand to chat freely and provide peer support and guidance as well as our own counsellor, it provides a safe and relaxed environment to come and talk in confidence.
Please only attend if you aren’t experiencing any Covid related symptoms. Hand sanitisers will be available on site. Dads Unlimited washable face masks will be available to purchase for £5 and all proceeds will go directly back into the charity.

What a fantastic day we had at DU’s Zoo Keeper Day for separated/ single parent families. We had a full turnout and despite the weather, everyone had a great time and got stuck in feeding the animals and learning more about them. Thank you Whiteleaf Farm/ Creepy Claws for another great event.
Camping with DU families – September 2020
Before the Covid restrictions tightened up, we managed to get in a weekend of camping for some of our DU families. A brilliant weekend and one that both parents and children loved. With so much positive feedback, the children were in their element and the adults had some much needed down time.

Monday 27th April 6-8pm – Dyson Brown Hair Salon – CANCELLED
Does your daughter ever complain about your lack of hair styling skills? Would you like to do more than a basic pony tail or make a tidier plait? Well, this is your chance to change all that!
For single parent dads, Dads Unlimited have organised an event, courtesy of the team at Dyson Brown hair salon. This relaxed and informal 2 hour interactive session will be a good experience of learning how to do a french plait, dutch plait and fish tail and even a polished pony tail. Dyson Brown are also providing a goodies bag with hair ties and clips to take home.
Please feel free to bring your daughter with you or should your daughter not be available, you will be able to test out your new skills on one of the head blocks at the salon.
