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".
