This page is the current home for everything ‘In Dad’s Shoes’, a nationwide exhibition on single fathers and their children, to highlight the importance of parental love and giving fathers and their little ones the support they need, in the way they want it.
This ground-breaking exhibition by DadsHouse, an organisation dedicated to helping single dads and focused on fatherhood and its responsibilities rather than parental rights, is a gorgeous and ever-growing photography exhibition featuring loving single fathers and their children.
It features photographs by talented young and emerging photographers based in the UK, whose work will be showcased across the country. We are particularly delighted to announce a new resident photographer for the tour, Harry Borden, acclaimed portrait photographer, who has captured the likes of Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher and many more icons of the twentieth and twenty first century.
In Dad’s Shoes is lovingly supported by the Department for Work and Pensions.
Here, you’ll find all the latest on the Tour, from:
- Our launch in the House of Lords, like the speeches and a summary of the event
- Photographs and fun from the many different places hosting the exhibition, over the country
- And news about the Tour, to;
- Policy documents, press releases, media coverage and much more
Orrrr, just click on the drop-down menu above for ‘In Dad’s Shoes’ and access the fun!

Biological fathers not necessarily the best, social dads parent well too.
Researchers have known since 2008 (we knew all the time) but kept quite about it as the SS like to depict step fathers are abusers!
Nice to know that is not the common veiw!

Dana, I think this comment is terribly sexist. There is absolutely no evidence to show that ‘biological mothers are necessarily the best, social mom parent too’. I have spent many years campaigning against this notion and it is sad to see it repeated again on this forum. kip
Kingsley (Kip) said:
Natasha, Apropos I found it interesting to discover the original Grimm Fairy Tales featured biological parents as opposed to ‘step’ parents and I wonder whether this was an early attempt to sanitize the truth? kip
Hi Kip, yes, I think fairy tales are fascinating. In their original form they are always much darker, and I believe this was to serve as a cautionary tale for children couched in gentle narrative to warn them about the world they were living in then. Some of the Irish fairy tales are incredibly dark, but my son loved then when he was little. I confess to reading him only the softer versions but the original tales were harrowing…

I agree about tales being preparation for reality: fox hunting was preparation for cavalry charges. Additionally telling the ‘best’ stories in an evening round a fire and children hiding under chairs was a competitive event and I can imagine lots of benefits to being reknown for telling great stories in terms of invitations and provision of food and drink!
