ABF [Australian Brotherhood of Fathers] – Join our Tuesday nights “Dads Support Group” at your local Dads Support Centre / ABF Office.
Welcome to the ABF’s Dads Support Group program.
Are you a separated Dad wanting to connect with other dads as you navigate child access disputes, domestic violence, child support or the family law system? Our group session works through the changes and challenges separated dads like you will experience in an honest, healthy and proactive way.
You’re invited to join the ABF on Tuesday nights for our “Dads Support Group” at your local Dads Support Centre / ABF Office. Group meetings are currently running on the Gold Coast Qld and in Newcastle NSW with more locations being organised for a location near you.
The ABF also integrates Zoom meetings for Dads who are not able to attend the groups in person and we encourage you to connect with our Facebook Page for regular updates on how to access the ABF’s Online Dads Support Group.

MISA – Men’s information & support association (Strathpine), provides a range of specialised services and information for men and their families.
MISA supports men in difficult life situations, we walk with them to find a way ahead, even when the future seems bleak, and overwhelming. We invite men of different backgrounds, ages, and situations to access our services in order to regain lost control, and build new direction into their lives.
Whilst we provide proactive male-focused support services that strengthen relationships and hope for men, MISA services are occasionally used by women and children and we strive to ensure they feel welcome and valued. Our services place the client at the centre of decision making processes which are based in theory while being grounded, compassionate, respectful and authentic.
