'Being a Dad' is a drama reflecting the lived experiences, hopes, fears and challenges faced by many fathers, especially disadvantaged young fathers, in Scotland today. Challenges that can be (and are) overcome with courage, knowledge and support. A homegrown production developed by Fathers Network Scotland and Strange Town productions as part of the Year of the Dad campaign.


Research overwhelmingly shows how children and women benefit from the positive involvement of fathers. Already, employers and service providers who support dads are discovering a win-win outcome as new shared parenting legislation opens up unprecedented opportunities for equality in both home and workplace. So what will you do to push forward this historic culture-shift? Do you want to learn more about the benefits of supporting dads? Join us as we dispel outdated myths about dads and celebrate the unsung multitudes already embracing their potential as caregivers and role models at the centre of their children’s lives.
