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.
