Prominent dads and organisations from across Australia have come together to launch the Dads’ Action Plan for the Early Years to show their support for early years reform.

If you’re a dad, carer or parent who wants your kids to Thrive by Five – add your name to make the campaign stronger.

What is the Action Plan all about?

Outdated gender stereotypes mean that sometimes dads feel like it’s not their role to focus on their child’s quality of care, or that they aren’t supported to be involved by employers or the community.

But equitable parenting arrangements are better for everyone – kids, mums, dads, workplaces, the economy and broader society.

That’s why a new alliance of dads and organisations have joined Thrive by Five to launch the Dads Alliance Action Group and the Dads’ Action Plan, outlining key policy changes that would empower dads to help their kids thrive by five, promote equitable parenting and give kids the best possible start in life.
