Eleven years ago, Simon was unemployed, homeless and living in a second hand £250 car.

So Simon was determined to find a recipe for recovery. By selling cars, he started to make a living, then branched out into recruitment, and today Dad the Dish is going from strength to strength showing single dads in particular how to cook simple to make tasty meals.
