DadsHouse (1), the UK’s leading charity for single and lone fathers has become the first organisation in Europe to offer homeless fathers temporary accommodation.
Five houses across London have been converted into studios with en suite bathrooms and shared kitchens (2) where fathers will also be to access DadsHouse support services including coaching, their buddy service and family law advice.
Billy McGranaghan (3), Founder of DadsHouse:
“DadsHouse is delighted to be the first organisation in Europe to help single dads with temporary accommodation, and to give them time to get back on their feet and to build a healthy relationship with their children after a family breakdown.
We are starting this exciting project in South London and aim to offer this support in every borough.”
Fathers can find out more about DadsHouse accommodation via their local authority or by contacting DadsHouse direct. (4)
