In June 2012, the Family Strategic Partnership convened a group of leading fathers' organisations and academics to highlight the needs and experiences of young fathers aged 16 to 24 in England, and the joint role of statutory and voluntary services in supporting them.

The journeys reveal the blockages that can occur when insufficient support is available, and the opportunities that arise when services respond to young fathers effectively. (Author abstract)
