NHS Young Fathers Project
Working First Hand With Young Fathers
Working in partnership, Contact and the Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust created two plays exploring the themes surrounding young fathers and the issues they face in society.
Creative Experts led a series of workshops, with a group of young fathers, exploring the realities of fatherhood, re-interpreting the stories using drama, enabling hopes and fears to be shared between the participants.
Contact’s creative team then brought the resultant plays to life on stage. Themes and issues explored included the need for family support, the challenge of dealing with new emotions and the importance of being connected to neighbours and community.
