Canterbury Dads Support


Canterbury Dads Support is our care service for dads. Jayden (pictured on the right) is our Dads Support Worker and is available for one on one chats after 25 May 2020. He will also be setting up a dads group (or two) for dads to catch up with each other. 

To contact Jayden use the generic contact info for the CMC.

See our report called Caring for Canterbury Dads: Hatched, Matched and Dispatched that emerged from a limited community consultation in April 2020.

 Other Support for Dads

 If you are a dad going through separation and access issues, as well as grief and other challenges we suggest the MensLine fortnightly group. They operate out of our rooms fortnightly at

We also encourage you to come in to have a conversation through our counselling service about what has been going on. We take every guy through a series of questions that get to the heart of whatever you have been dealing with and from there we tell you of options choices other men have used or will tell you about relevant services.
