Fathering across Cultures

Guide for Engaging New and Expectant Fathers from Migrant and Refugee Backgrounds

This new resource website, developed by the Migration Council Australia in collaboration with the Australian Government, has now been launched.  

Visit the website www.fatheringacrosscultures.org.au 

Who is the Guide for? 

People and organisations in the community and health services sector, as well as in the multicultural and settlement sector, who engage with new and expectant fathers from migrant and refugee backgrounds as part of their work.

What is in the Guide?

The Guide provides advice and practical tips on how to engage with new and expectant fathers from migrant and refugee backgrounds, and to better support them in understanding their role and expectations of parenting in Australia while maintaining their cultural values. Service providers will be better able to support the fathers in going through this significant change in their lives. 

Is there an App?

Yes. The Guide will be accompanied by a mobile app in the near future which will provide access for new and expectant fathers from migrant and refugee backgrounds to information on the first five years of fatherhood and where they can find support. Check the Fathering Across Cultures website for more details.

Feedback regarding the website is welcomed online www.fatheringacrosscultures.org.au
