2022 award highlights

Looking ahead at 2023

We are exhilarated with the award recipients and event for 2022. It was a grand show of our mission in action and helped us raise much needed awareness for The Fathering Project and the impact an active and present father or father figure has on the life and future of a child. 

We’ve had a wealth of great media exposure for our award recipients but most importantly for our mission. 

Each winner is a true representation of our work at The Fathering Project and they will be exceptional ambassadors for carrying our work and word. 

We know that 2023 will only be bigger and better and we can’t wait to discover fathers/father figures and role models that inspire every parent to go above an beyond in Changing Children’s lives. 

And with YOUR support in sponsorship, we can continue to establish a positive intergenerational impact for all Australian children.
