Sure Start South Armagh recognises the import role fathers and male carers play in lives of their children. The project has for many years offered programmes and support to fathers and male carers. Research has shown that men who are present from the prenatal phase through childbirth are more likely to be connected and attached to their children from the earliest moments, establishing the basis for life long close relationship with their children. Children who have emotionally close relationship with their fathers are more likely themselves to demonstrate empathy and be involved with their communities.See what we offer
