Think Dads Conference

Trent Vineyard, Lenton Lane, Nottingham, NG7 2PX

The Think Dads Conference in Nottingham features presentations from various experts and from dads themselves.

Who are dads? Why are they important? When we say ‘Father Inclusive’ what do we mean? The Think Dads Conference aims to answer those questions with presentations from various experts in the field and from the unique perspective of dads themselves. The information will be delivered in an engaging way, with music and food included.

It will take place at Trent Vineyard, Lenton Lane, Nottingham NG7 2PX on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, from 9am until 4pm.

You will hear from a range of speakers including Dr Anna Machin, author of ‘The Life of Dads’, and Professor Anna Tarrant from the University of Lincoln. Also including unique stories and perspectives from dads, this conference aims to inspire you to ‘Think Dads’ in all aspects of a child and family’s life. The day will delve into the untapped potential of dads and the benefits engaging with dads could bring to our communities. Al Hurraya will also be there to share their knowledge and experience of dads in different cultural settings, to enable you to understand how to tailor support to all dads in Nottingham.

The event is organised by Small Steps Big Changes (SSBC).
