10.2 B. Guidance and Resources

Caring Dads Programme

This programme was developed in recognition of the lack of interventions in the UK with fathers at risk of directly perpetrating physical and emotional child abuse. This presentation gives an overview of the programme which aims to address this gap.

Please note that Respect recommend that this programme should not be seen as a replacement to a Perpetrator Programme as it does not address the dynamics involved in intimate partner violence.
