Council of Dadz
Salford Dadz - Little Hulton is managed by a group of local fathers but we didn't really like referring to ourselves as "the committee" so we decided to call it the "Council of Dadz".

All members of the council of dadz are signatories to our constitution and it is their job to ensure that we carry out our work in accordance to this.
