What is Yorkey Dads?

Menfulness began as Yorkey Dads in 2016.  We realised that there were a lot of support groups for mums and female carers but less going on for dads., grandads, carers and dad’s to be! We wanted somewhere that men could feel confident in opening up, asking for support and meeting dads in similar situations.  Since then the group has gone on to host various clubs and meetings and even won the Spirit of York Award at the City of York Council VIP Awards in 2017. After a hiatus due to the Covid Pandemic Yorkey Dads is back with the Hair School on the last Sunday of every month and a new monthly breakfast club starting on on Sunday 23rd October! Check out our Meetup page for all our events and how to book on!

Why not join our Yorkey Dad’s Facebook Group to keep up with what’s going on and connect with other dads?
