Just for Dads

The DadPad - for First-time Fathers in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

Help us to help dads-to-be get all the important information that they told us they needed to know: get one and use one, or gift one, then send us your feedback and help us add to the pad!

The DadPad was developed and piloted by the team at Inspire Cornwall CIC in 2012. We are a Social Enterprise with no shareholders, putting any profit and feedback back into our products for the benefit of the new dads and their families. The DadPad was created because babies don’t come with a set of instructions, and dads told us they wanted important information on what to expect and how to care for their baby. We listened to what dads, their partners and professionals asked for and combined it all in this new DadPad for dads-to-be.
