Following Young Fathers was a study on young fatherhood carried out at the University of Leeds from November 2010 to October 2015. It was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.

Following Young Fathers Further

The Following Young Fathers study is now being taken forward by Dr. Anna Tarrant, who has secured up to 7 years funding from the UKRI for her Following Young Fathers Further study. This new study is following up a sample of the young men who took part in the original study, and it will introduce new cohorts of young fathers in both the UK and Scandinavia, whose lives will also be traced over time.

Many  congratulations to Anna on securing this significant funding. Any news and developments on young fatherhood research will be logged on the new website:
