Dad Matters Somerset is a PIMHs (Parent/Infant Mental Health) project developed by Home-Start West Somerset.
Home-Start West Somerset offers support, friendship & practical help to families at home with children under seven from Minehead to Watchet and from Porlock to Dulverton!
We engage with people who have recently used local maternity services, listening to their experiences and feedback. We share their insight with Somerset’s Integrated Care System and the maternity service providers it commissions, to make sure people’s opinions are at the heart of shaping Somerset’s maternity services.
It’s the essential guide for new dads, developed with the NHS. DadPad offers knowledge and practical skills and resources to support Dad and their partner to give their baby the best possible start in life.
