Fathers are more involved in their children’s upbringing now than they were a few generations ago, but we know that personal, social and cultural barriers continue to exist that hinder a father’s involvement in their children’s upbringing. Policies such as shared parental leave and extensions to paternity leave have made modest advances in shifting cultural behaviour, but more work needs to be done.
Future Men is secretariat of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Fatherhood. The APPG is a cross-party group of MPs and Peers. Its aim is to help to promote the wellbeing of children by ensuring that legal and policy frameworks keep up with the changing nature of family life, and that legislation encourages active and responsible fatherhood.
Date of next meeting: Wednesday 20 July 2022 (this will be a hybrid meeting; registration is essential)
Speaker: Adrienne Burgess, Head of Research and co-Chief Executive Officer of the Fatherhood Institute
