Spend quality time with your daughter as part of the Daughters and Dads Active and Empowered programme.

New to The Albion Foundation this year, the project aims to increase physical activity levels, sports skills and social-emotional wellbeing of 5-11 year-old girls by challenging stereotypes about playing sport and physical activity.

In partnership with Women in Sport, the Fatherhood Institute, EFL Trust and the University of Newcastle (Australia), the programme will also increase fathers’ confidence and ability to act as role models in relation to their daughter’s participation.

The programme is open to fathers and father figures (step-dads, grandads, uncles, brothers etc) and primary school-aged daughters.

The sessions will be unique to the local area and will attempt to unite daughters and their dads, something that excites Engagement Coordinator at The Albion Foundation, Lyndsey Smalley.

“We feel that this will benefit our community by bringing different groups together and help reduce Dads feeling isolated,” said Lyndsey.

“We do not have anything like this within our area and the local schools and community are very much in full support of empowering our dads,” she said.

The 12-week programme is completely free and will begin on Wednesday, January 22, taking place weekly from 3:15pm-4:45pm at Crocketts Primary School.
