There are currently over 2 million non-residential dads in the UK and over 200,000 raising their children alone. Just in London 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 realized that there was very little support for fathers.Although there were a number of organisations available to help parents, there was no support for the practical side, no one to meet up with for a coffee and chat, people that would have an understanding of their struggles. It was Billy's dream to create a charity that could offer the support needed by single dads so he set up Dads House.
Dads House aim is to make sure children remain the priority after divorce, separation or bereavement.We will help all Dads in need but can not assist anyone that has been charged with any physical/verbal abuse of their children/partner.There are many ways in which we help dads and families, including offering emotional support, combating loneliness and isolation by being available to chat with Dads on the phone or in-person at our drop-in centre, breakfast clubs, law clinics, food banks and accommodation/housing. Our goal is to have drop-in centres around the UK run by Dads.
