'Young fathers work doesn't need to cost a lot of money, you just need to be a bit thoughtful about it...'

Key questions:
  • Which young fathers are out there? What do you know about them?
  • How will you identify and gain access to these young fathers?
  • What services are you offering? Why would young fathers want to get involved?
  • How will you assess (and then act upon) young fathers support needs?
  • How will the work be funded, and for how long?
  • How will you raise awareness of the project/service?
  • How will success criteria be developed and measured?
  • How will these be monitored and who will be responsible for this?

Top tips:
