Young Dads Collective

A group of young dads who work to improve the lives of their peers throughout the uk.

YDC sharing young dads' knowledge and experiences with practitioners, service providers and policy makers.

"We provide a range of professional, peer-led services offering advice, training, research and solutions to the challenges faced by the organisations who aim to provide support for young dads."

"Young Dads are amongst the most socially excluded parenting groups in the UK and this is why the Young Dads Collective (YDC) works to reduce levels of poverty and isolation experienced by young dads aged 25 and under, while developing the skill sets and employability of all the young dads who are members".
