Donate to Who Let The Dads Out?

Supporting outreach to fathers, father figures and their children

Seeking to change a nation, one family at a time

Through Who Let The Dads Out? we are encouraging local churches to engage intentionally with fathers, father figures and their children in their communities. By providing a safe place for dads to come together, Who Let The Dads Out? groups strengthen families and play a part in transforming relationships between fathers and their children.

From starting in a single church in March 2003, there are now over 200 churches running regular Who Let The Dads Out? groups.

A catalyst for change in the local community

Tony Sharp and Mark Chester

Tony Sharp and Mark Chester, supported by the wider BRF staff team, work to encourage and nurture the more than 200 Who Let The Dads Out? groups in the UK and beyond.

In addition, the focus of much of their work at the moment is to highlight the need for churches across the UK to engage intentionally in ministry to fathers. While half of churches run parent and toddler groups (mainly aimed at women), we estimate that only 1% of churches are reaching out in some way specifically to fathers and their children.

We're working to encourage more churches to adopt a deliberate strategy to reach out to fathers and their children, providing a space for them to deepen their relationships with each other and offering a forum where matters of faith can be explored.

This work is funded almost entirely by donations and grants from individuals, churches and charitable trusts (more about how we're funded). Can you help us by giving a one-off or regular donation? Thank you.

If you're not able to donate today then do find out how you can support us in prayer.

Donate to Who Let The Dads Out?

Each year, we need to raise funds to sustain and develop ministry to fathers, father figures and their children through Who Let The Dads Out? Please consider whether you could give a one-off or regular donation to help change a nation.
