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.

 

"Dads House is a wonderful Organisation, and I am very proud to hold an exhibition in The House Of Lords, 'In Dads Shoes' Photography exhibition."

Treasurer of the parliamentary group for children
