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.
How often have you witnessed your kids hide in embarrassment when you take to the dancefloor? Perhaps your kids just don’t appreciate your moves or maybe they are just jealous?
To help bring this very important issue to the fore - and have some fun in the process - we have teamed up with kids’ pop band - Zeamu Music. They are all about giving kids great music that they can relate to and that reflects their lives and interests and it just so happens they have a song about dad dancing.

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.
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 from 10am to 6pm for anyone that needs a helping hand.
