Health and wellbeing

Looking after your physical and mental wellbeing can often feel like a challenge. Life events like a relationship breakdown, house eviction, job loss or bereavement can lead to increased anxiety, strong emotional experiences and feeling isolated.

Your wellbeing during Coronavirus

We have information about looking after your family’s mental wellbeing during coronavirus. Which includes thoughts on your mental wellbeing, tips on how to reduce anxiety, various online resources, speaking to your children and exercising at home.

An introduction to our Health and Wellbeing service

Asking for help can be tough, and many people wait till a crisis point is reached before they ask for support. We want to work with single parents to support their wellbeing so that this doesn’t have to happen. It’s never too early to get in touch with our wellbeing team and find out how we can help.


One-to-one support

We run a one to one wellbeing support through our Wellbeing and Mental Health Service.


Group support

We offer groups at all our local services based on ideas from parents themselves.



We run counselling service through our Wellbeing and Mental Health Service.


Five ways to wellbeing

The five ways to wellbeing were developed 12 years ago by the New Economics Foundation based on evidence on what makes people happy and what supports good mental health.
