Welcome to Dads House
Dads House set up in 2008 to help single dads in the practicalities of looking after their children on their own...
There are over 2 million non resident dads in the UK and over 200,000 looking after children on their own. In London there are 20,000 dads who are the main carers for their children.
Dads House has set up a collaborative partnership with BPP University Law School which is a private, provider of professional and academic legal education in theUK. From September 2016, Dads will be able to have access to family law services via this partnership and receive advice and support.
DadsHouse is now able to offer housing for fathers in need of accommodation.
Our Housing Project is currently based in South London, with houses located in Lewisham, Bexley and Greenwich. Each development is able to accommodate five fathers, with en suite bathrooms and shared kitchens. Dads are welcome to stay as long as they need to, or until their Local Authority finds alternative housing. The project will be expanding, and we hope to offer more housing in different areas of England, in the future.
As collection agents prices vary so much from £105,VAT TO OVER £300, Dads House does not charge dads for this service, we ask for a £35 donation to Dadshouse saving dads a lot of money when they least can afford it.
Dadshouse will be launching our first Saturday service, on Saturday morning the 6th of June,It will be open to everyone who needs advice,information and guidance.Due to legal aid cuts,Dads and Mums everywhere are at a loss" of what the next steps are to try and find any kind of support, or network of who to turn to for help.

Dads House has introduced a buddy service.From our experience there is very little information on the practicalities of being a dad.And we know how important it is,to have someone to talk to with your concerns.
The Buddy service is very informal and low key where you can have a coffee and a chat.
Dads House has launched a food bank for dads and anyone the needs a helping hand in Kensington and Chelsea. The Food bank will be open every Monday and Wednesday from 10am to 6pm for anyone that needs a helping hand.
