This is an individual support and consultation service for Aboriginal fathers-to-be at the Mercy Hospital. The program is designed to assist Koorie fathers-to-be to play an active role in their families. Culturally appropriate services are delivered by an Indigenous Koorie counsellor and liaison coordinator.
The aims of the program are to empower families through strong fathering knowledge, and to share knowledge of parenting through gatherings of Koorie fathers, grandfathers and step fathers.
Participants can also be supported through access to the wider resources provided by Children's Protection Society such as counselling and family services, with cultural support by an Indigenous worker.
