A charity in Wales is calling for more funding to help dads improve their relationship with their children.
Dad's Can say one in three children grow up without their father being present, with 15-year-olds more likely to own a smartphone than have their father at home.
The charity says fathers are often isolated in the early years of childcare, in a society they say has focused more on supporting mothers. It works with fathers to help them become positive role models in their children's lives.
Nathan Urquhart is one of around four hundred men who have taken part in the Dad's Can project during the its first three years.
He no longer has anything to do with his own father - who has been convicted of several assaults.
The charity's pilot project coaches fathers, who may have had difficult pasts, with issues such as low self-esteem, mental health and relationship breakdown.
A Monmouthshire Housing Association project, the scheme is currently run across across Newport and Monmouthshire. But AM Nick Ramsey says it should be rolled out across Wales.
He will be holding a Short Debate in the Welsh Assembly promoting the need for the service to be funded by the Government as a pilot scheme in May.
