Young fathers in Thetford are set to get more support after the formation of a new drop-in service.
Officials at Keystone Development Trust are inviting fathers to the Dads' Place group at the Abbey Neighbourhood Centre.
The service, open every Saturday from noon to 2pm, aims to advise and inform young fathers on subjects such as pregnancy, childbirth, work, relationships, money, health and legal rights, as well as tips and strategies for praising and playing with their children.
The formation of the group is part of Keystone Development Trust's two-year Young Parents Project, which is funded by a £70,000 grant from the Camelot Foundation.
