COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR GENDER –
In April 2011 new dad Errol Murray led a group of other dads looking for ways to spend more time with their young babies in setting up their own playgroup at a café in Leeds City Centre. Now, they’re opening their doors for hundreds of other dads in the city! Leeds Dads is a charitable organisation that brings together a diverse community of fathers for social interaction and support. They host playgroups for dads and pre-school children, organise social events, and signpost towards expert parenting support. This superb organisation runs free preschool playgroups for dads and children, where approx. 30 dads/granddads meet to enjoy art/craft, games, a singalong and storytime. In 2019 their flagship event Dadstastic Day attracted over 2000 dads, mums, carers and kids – it’s now the biggest free Father’s Day Party in England!
