It is important to develop effective support for men, including boys, fathers and male carers. A new Research in Practice podcast explores services that successfully support men.
We all have circumstances and pressures that need to be understood so it's important we create services that work effectively, understand cultural identity and advocate for all men.
The podcast explores a service being developed in Leeds City Council to work with fathers from a Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic background, with reflections from a father who took part in the Journey project. It explores experiences of working together, the importance of understanding someone’s cultural identity, listening and sharing emotions.
The podcast is the third in a series of three podcasts about the journey Leeds is taking to improve its work with fathers.
The series shares examples of positive practice and provides advice for social workers looking to work more effectively.
This podcast examines the difference that having a dedicated service for fathers can make, with reflections from a father with lived experience of services.
