Father & Child Trust is looking for fathers who have day-to-day care of at least one child eight years or under in either Christchurch or Auckland. The Trust is conducting what is believed to be the first study in New Zealand on the circumstances, issues and support of solo fathers and their young children.
Participants are being interviewed face-to-face on a range of questions about themselves and their children.
The Trust has been concerned for a whole that many solo father families appear to fall through the cracks of support services, and hopes to use the study results to raise awareness about the need for more inclusive service practice.
