Refugee Dads and Kids Weekend

Our weekend away provides fun activities for dads and kids to enjoy together, in a relaxed setting, where open discussions can be had and fathers can spend quality one-on-one time with their child.

The program aims to support refugee and asylum seeker families from all communities, including: Afghani, African, Burmese, Iraqi, Syrian and others. A child may attend with another male relative, for example an uncle or grandparent.

Discussions include:

  • Respecting traditional cultures
  • The challenges and differences between parenting in the country of origin and parenting in Australia
  • Ways to strengthen the father-child relationship
  • Understanding each other’s strengths
