An Invercargill dads group is gaining interest in the city.

Plunket Southland community services leader Liam O'Sullivan started the group last month with the aim of getting dads together to support each other and share "dad stuff".

They were not many places men could go to discuss parenting issues, he said.

Since it started, the group had had three get-togethers and four dads had attended.

The dads' several discussions had including what it was like to be a dad, car seats, how best to support their partners and fishing, O'Sullivan said.

Other services had been in touch, wanting to refer dads who may be looking for a group to talk with, he said.

Tapanui had also started a group with six dads.

"There are no dads groups like this, and now there seems to be growing interest from other agencies to start these up, which is just brilliant."

The next dads group get- together will be at 6pm on Tuesday at the Invercargill Plunket Rooms in Kelvin St.
