In our fourth podcast, the Voice of the Child speaks with DadsHouse founder Billy McGranaghan on how austerity has hit single fathers and their children.
Offering support and father-focused services to dads who have experienced divorce or bereavement, Billy explains that food bank use among families is on the rise, in the wake of Lord Marmot’s damning review on austerity and poverty.
Billy also shares a controversial theory he holds about why mothers going through family courts may sometimes fabricate domestic abuse allegations.
Listen to the podcast to find out more, and to discover which section of society Billy believes is the UK’s “ghost demographic”.

Well said, William.

A good talk from Billy, although he does need to watch his language.
he is correct that the Govt dont give a damn about how many children are not getting to see their parents or at least one of them.
especially for children in long term foster care or on a SGO where they have been cut off and lies are told to them and to their parents. there needs to be more access by independent advocates to make shure LAs and others are not breaking the law to serve their own agenda. the wishes and feelings of these children must be revealed to p[arents and any other professionals that could help the child as this may prevent mental health problems later on.
one thing to note about your podcasts Natasha is that you dont introduce yourself to the listener.
Hi Keith, thank you for your feedback.
