FORGING MATES

Connecting with like-minded men can be difficult. Especially if you’re living regionally, work FIFO, moving frequently or just don’t have a group of mates you can really talk with.

The Australian Dads Networks vision is to provide Dads with a platform to connect with other Dads and discuss all things.

With honesty and no judgement we can ask questions and get answers that will assist us in improving daily - in all areas of our lives.

We have provided a space for men to discuss the hard-hitting and confronting topics that arise in our lives, topics that you have not or may not want to discuss with the current friend and family circle.

I started today feeling so low, and like I was hopeless to some degree. You guys really opened up my eyes and my mind to what it feels like to have some support.

We exist only by the strength of camaraderie and mateship. With mates by our side we are stronger. The network we have enables us to reach out and lean in when we are struggling.

Being a Dad is like playing a well-designed video game: it’s always hard enough to challenge you but not so hard that you can’t do it. Whatever you have on at the moment, you can work through it.
