Welcome to Dadsnet

"It makes me realise the problems I have are not unique or strange." Tom, Dadsnet since 2021


Local groups include events & chat specific to your area - they're great for meeting new friends, organising meet-ups with other dads & plenty more. These are private groups & offer a safe space for dads to chat and support each other.


Our charting podcasts have something for everyone. Whether you're looking for dad-specific listening, wanting pure entertainment, celeb interviews or something more specific, have a browse. 


Free mailing list membership you have access to the Dadsnet.com website forum and regular email updates with the very best of our content.

Feeling in Crisis?


We understand that dads need support, and our social community offers a friendly environment to vent and seek advice on any life-problem, but there are also times when life has become so unenjoyable and difficult that you may be at a point of crisis and need urgent help.

There is no shame in feeling this way, reaching out for help is an act of strength, at Dadsnet we have an ethos of “keep talking”, and if you feel life is impossible or you are under so much strain you have been considering harming yourself, then please reach out to one of the organisations below for some 1-to-1 help and advice.

Remember, these feelings are temporary, much as it may seem there is no way out right now.
