Organisations support dads in West Norfolk could get a share of up to £10,000.
Norfolk County Council is offering the grant to fund local groups which help new fathers in their first 1001 days of being a parent.
The grants can cover things such as developing social spaces and networks for dads, antenatal care groups specifically for fathers, and activities that strengthen relationships.
Charities, faith organisations, social enterprises, voluntary or community groups have until noon on Thursday 8, February to apply.
Penny Carpenter, the county councillor responsible for children’s services, said: “Becoming a parent comes with a lot of new responsibility, which can be a daunting prospect and something that takes a lot of adjusting to. In all the excitement of bringing a new baby home, fathers can sometimes get forgotten where needing support is concerned.
“Specific support for new Dads is well overdue and these grants will help organisations support new and expectant fathers to feel empowered, informed and confident in their new role as Dad, as well as connect them to others with shared experiences.”
