The Dads’ Fire Circle Online Gathering
The next gathering will be on Wednesday 15th February, a Half Term Special. Via Zoom (see Eventbrite link below, or contact Mark for details) A chance to gather, share, laugh, cry and journey together, as well as sharing a bit of Christmas cheer!

Scheduled conversation topics:
– Catch up, how is everyone doing? How did the first half-term of 2023 go? What are you doing during half-term holidays (for those with school/college age children).
– What are we planning for? Looking forward to? Hoping for in 2023?

Parenting a child or young person with additional needs or disability can be isolating sometimes, and not everyone understands what it can be like. This community is there to provide a safe place for Dads to gather and encourage each other, journey with each other and help each other.

We’ve had a great time at our monthly ‘gatherings’ since July 2020, with a group of between four and 14 Dads coming together to share a little about ourselves, seeing how much we had in common, thinking about what we would say to our younger selves about the journey that we are on, as well as chatting about how the current coronavirus crisis is affecting us and our families. We’ve talked about how we look after self-care, what the return to school is looking like, relationships, engaging with school and other professionals, lockdown, Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP’s), equipment and resources, Christmas holiday plans, New Year hopes, summer holiday plans, back to school, and much more.

“Thanks so much, Mark, for bringing us together. It was really great and so helpful. Good to meet everyone — look forward to the next time.”

“Thanks Mark really enjoyed it, nice to find other Dads on similar journeys who are prepared to talk about it, looking forward to next time.” 

“I have really enjoyed the conversation….many thoughts and feelings that have engulfed my mind and heart. Truly impactful (positive).”

Read the ‘About’ page to get a better idea of what we’ll be doing. It’s free to join in, either use the Eventbrite link below to register, or contact Mark at to let him know that you are coming so that we know how many will be there. We’ll send you all the joining information in advance so that you can ‘come and join us around the fire’.

Next gathering will be on Wednesday 15th February, a Half-Term Special.
