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.

Accommodation For Fathers Now Available

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.
