Additional Information: Fathers’ involvement in their children’s lives can significantly impact children’s subsequent social, emotional and educational development from birth onwards. The challenge is to understand the complex issues around becoming a father in order to access the potential benefits and mitigate the potential risks of involvement. This systematic review aims to explore the diversity of fathers’ views in order to better understand the needs and preferences of the broadest spectrum of fathers in the UK. To support an understanding of diversity, the review synthesises the research on fathers’ views with an ‘equity lens’ (Kavanagh et al 2008) to look at differences between various socioeconomic and cultural groups categorised by ‘PROGRESS plus’ indicators (Ibid.).
