Saturdads is a group for Dads and other male carers of children who have special educational needs or disabilities.

The group meets monthly and is based at Springboard Opportunity Group in Chippenham.

The aims of Saturdads are:

  • To provide a social setting for Dads and male carers and their children  in a familiar and safe environment;
  • For Dads/carers to share knowledge and gain support from each other;
  • For families to make use of Springboard’s specialist resources;
  • For the children to have an opportunity to share their play and learning experiences with Dad/carers.

Activities usually include painting and other messy play and Dads/Carers can use the centre’s quiet spaces, sensory room, garden and play areas.

At the moment (due to COVID-19) the group will be meeting online from 9.30-11.30am on a Saturday on the dates listed below.
