Welcome to Dads House
There are currently over 2 million non residential dads in the UK and over 200,000 raising their children alone.
In London alone there are 20,000 dads who are the main carers for their children.
We have seen a huge change in society and these figures are expected to rise dramatically in the next 5 years.
After raising his own son from an early age, William realised that there was very little support for fathers.
Although there was a number of organisations available to help parents, there was no support for the practicle side, no one to meet up with for a coffee and chat, people that would have an understanding on their struggles.
It was Billy's dream create a charity that could offer the support needed by single dads.
Since Dads House launched in 2008, our reputation has grown within many organisations, local authorities and the UK Government, who often contact Dads House to help with various topics.
In 2013 Dads House launched in Kent. Our 5 year plan going forward is to have Dads House branches accross th UK, enabling us to help and support as many single fathers as possible.
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.
Family breakdown can often result in fathers losing contact with their children. We understand how important it is for dads to maintain their family network during separation and divorce. Our accommodation ensures that fathers need not lose touch with their family.
We also have accommodation in West London' Ealing, Perivale,Acton,
