FATHERS and their young children are being invited to a series of drop-in sessions run by an award-winning Moray charity.
Step by Step in Moray is running the sessions after staff attended a training workshop delivered by a group which champions the role of dads.
Project manager Gareth Jenkins said: "We know from supporting over 1600 families that there are many parents and children out there who have benefitted from the safe, supportive, welcoming environment provided by our staff and volunteers.
"A training workshop delivered by Fathers Network Scotland last year reinforced to us the important role that dads play in their child’s development and we are looking forward to welcoming more dads and their children to Step by Step in Moray.
"These drop-in sessions will help us find out what more we can do to help dads form positive attachments with their children."
The informal sessions, which are for dads and their children up to the age of 3, take place on: February 21, from 1-3pm; February 24, from 10am-noon; and February 26, from 1-3pm.
Anyone wishing to find out more can contact Mr Jenkins on 01343 544628 or just drop into Winchester House, 1 King St, Elgin, at the above times.
Step by Step in Moray, which was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Services in 2018, was established in 2008 to provide support to parents who felt isolated and vulnerable for whatever reason.
