Welcome to Dads House

 
Dads House was set up in 2008 by William McGranaghan to help single dads with the practicalities of raising their children alone.....

 

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.

Written submission to House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee Inquiry on “Fathers and the Workplace”

The issues, we believe, are a mixture of employers failing to recognise a shift in the structure of families in the modern age, as well as significant prejudice and discrimination towards fathers, who want to break away from the traditional stereotype of fathers and the workplace....
