This paper explores the following four domains in which child welfare workers have to think strategically if work with young fathers is to succeed: within the agency, interagency, families and peers, and with young fathers who are chaotic and semi-chaotic. Strategies for consultation with young fathers are described, as well as strategies for identifying agencies for building partnerships. Tips are also provided for productive multi-agency working to support young dads, for ensuring funding and sustainability of programs, and for training to work with young dads.
