Flamingo Chicks has launched the ‘Dad & Me’ campaign to expose the thoughts and opinions of carer dads and how they can be better supported, especially at work.
There are approximately 770,000 dads in the UK who have a disabled child and Flamingo Chicks invited them to share their views to gain insight on the emotional and physical impact of being a carer dad and to see how employers can better these support fathers in this role.
The ‘Dad & Me’ campaign is in partnership with Irwin Mitchell, a leading UK law firm. Irwin Mitchell donated £1 for everyone who completed the survey, in a bid to drive carer dads to share their views and experiences.
