Fatherhood Foundation conference outcomes June 2007 Canberra

Our challenge today will be for us to be very open and honest with each other, to hear not only each other's words but also each other's hearts. Refer also to the 12pt plan and National Strategic Conference on Fatherhood (August 2003)

Our challenge today will be for us to be very open and honest with each other, to hear not only each other's words but also each other's hearts. The 12pt Plan and National Strategic Conference on Fatherhood (August 2003) were bor n out of the ability to listen and walk in one another's shoes, to show honour and respect for one another.

These are the keys to the positive outcomes we wish to achieve for the mothers, fathers and children of our nation. The 12pt Plan was launched in a true bipartisan fashion when a prominent politician said, "We don't want a men's movement that blames women, we want a men's movement that works with men and women to develop better identity, better relationships, a stronger fathering role in our society and to develop win-win outcomes, where as a society
across both genders, we can make advance s and make successful change."

The Fatherhood Foundation is a Harm Prevention Charity. Fatherlessness is a source of harm to children and families that carries a significant cost. Dr Bruce Robinson estimates the cost of fatherlessness to Australia to be in the vicinity of 13 billion dollars per year.

The goal of the Fatherhood Foundation is to promote excellence in fathering and increase the number of children growing up with an involved, committed, responsible and loving father.
