About Dads House

William McGranaghan founded Dads House in 2008 aiming to offer support to single fathers, most recently through the launch of its new project HOFF (Homes For Fathers and Families) which aims to provide accommodation and support, for fathers looking after children.
William was voted one of the Most Influential Dads of the Year, in 2009 on the Trisha Goddard Show and has made numerous other TV and radio appearances, including a collaboration with the BBC who filmed a special episode on his Dads House Football Evenings.
Dads House has most recently been asked to promote the highly acclaimed film The Road, which tells the story of a single father fighting to protect his son and provide him with the stability he deserves.
Quote: "I think it's about time that single fathers had a positive voice".

History

The founder and promoter of Dads House is William McGranaghan. William is himself a single father. He and his son, Sam, were left by Sam’s mother, who went abroad when Sam was one year old.  William immediately had to learn to care for Sam.  He took temporary and part time work in order to be able to spend time with Sam and to take him to school.  It was not easy. Sam was discovered at the age of eleven as having learning difficulties. Despite that, with William’s love and support, Sam did well at school and now, aged 18, has gone to college to study Sports Development.  William wishes to make life a bit easier for other fathers who find themselves in his predicament.  He wants them to get the help he did not get.

Supporters

Like any organisation, Dads House needs volunteers, donations and support from people to make this work. Here are just a few of the people that have got us this far. Thank you.

In Association with...

Notting Hill is one of the most inventive housing associations in the UK and one of the largest property developers in London. We house people in need, help residents become homeowners and reinvest the money we make to build new homes. The Peabody Group now owns and manages more than 19,000 homes across the capital. We only operate in London and manage a range of tenures, including social housing, leasehold, shared ownership, supported housing, key-worker accommodation and commercial units. Solidarity Sports was borne from the desire to provide affordable sports provision and health initiatives in deprived areas of London for marginalised communities that would ordinarily be unable to access and benefit from such opportunities.

HOFF

HOMES FOR FATHERS AND FAMILIES (“HOFF”)

Homes for Fathers and Families (“HOFF”) is a project aimed at providing the same degree of support for single fathers as is available for single mothers in the UK. Fathers who look after their children on their own have much the same difficulties as mothers.  In addition they are not necessarily as naturally gifted when it comes to caring for their children, nor are they seen as needing help, for example by employers in regard to time off or flexibility in working hours.  As a result, in many cases, their children suffer.
