DadLAN

Our mission is to fight loneliness, improve mental health outcomes, and provide dependable social spaces tailored to meet the unique needs of Dads from all walks of life.

We provide an uplifting social network and run in-person events for people to experience connection and community.

Every month we run a LAN gaming event in cities across Australia. It's a free event and a great way to meet up other Dads regularly.



Our community is on Discord and is full of interesting discussions about technology, dad life, venting, advice, and more.

No computer to bring along? No problem! We have partnered with WorkVentures who have given us dozens of spare laptops, so there's no barrier for you to join in.
