For Fathers

Fathers Outreach spent a year gathering both experience and evidence in preparation for the launch of an exciting new programme for fathers, their children and families - a world away from the family courts, CAFCASS, solicitors and the dreaded contact centres.

Launched on 27 February 2012 in Romford, we are creating a place of choice for dads to come for help and support - provided by people who know what it's like when a man's family breaks down.

We are delighted that for this pioneering project, we are joining forces with Romford Salvation Army, who will be providing their facilities and expertise to provide free pastoral care and practical support to fathers.

Regular events include:

  • activity sessions for all fathers and their children (every Saturday morning)
  • social gatherings for separated dads
  • one-to-one assistance (regular surgery every Wednesday afternoon)
At the launch, Major David Evans, of Romford Salvation Army, (pictured left) spoke about how serving suffering humanity, and particularly in meeting the needs of this often forgotten segment of society, was 'in the DNA' of the church.
The facilities made available include a variety of spaces and equipment to allow children of all ages to play with their fathers and siblings, counselling rooms for one-to-one services, and IT enabling fathers to work on correspondence, court papers and research, if they don't have their own computer.

Find out more about what we're doing, in the 'For Fathers' section of this website.

We're just off the M25, and five minutes' walk from Romford railway station, which has direct trains from London Liverpool Street.

All our activities can be found as events on our Facebook page.
