This year Find Me A Gift have teamed up with a really amazing charity. It’s always so hard to chose when there are such a great number of charities that all do such incredible work, but this year Dads House stole our hearts.
Set up in 2008 by William McGranaghan, in order to help single dads with the practicalities of raising their children alone. In the UK there are over 200,00 dads raising their children alone, and after finding himself in a situation with his own son from a young age, Billy realised there was very little support out there for dads. Although there were plenty of organisations available to help parents, there was little in the way of support / practical support, someone to meet up for a coffee with and have a chat with like minded people who would understand the struggles and frustrations – which is why Billy set up Dads House.
Dads House offers drop in advice clinics, breakfast clubs, training, advice and even housing! The charity has come a long way in 10 years but it’s ambition is to be nationwide, so they can help even more dads throughout the UK.
