DADs for Life was launched on 19 November 2009 in conjunction with International Men’s Day, with a mission to inspire, mobilise and involve fathers to become good influencers in their children’s lives for life. Since then, it has grown from into a national movement engaging over 250,000 families each year with initiatives such as Eat with Your Family Day, Back to School with Dad and Celebrating Fathers.

Every child needs a dad they can count on.

The research is clear: children thrive with an involved father—someone who loves, knows, guides and helps them achieve their destiny. We inspire and equip men to be the fathers their children need.
