We offer groups at all our local services based on ideas from parents themselves. These are not therapy groups but being part of a group can feel therapeutic and powerful.

Important notice

How can being part of a group help me?

Our groups offer an opportunity to share experiences, reduce feelings of loneliness, develop new friendships and know that you are not the only one dealing with the same struggles. Sometimes we simply can’t do it all by ourselves.

“This service has been a real lifesaver for me! As a single mum I felt so isolated, but this group has made me feel I have support. It has also helped me feel like me again and not just a mum. My daughter goes to creche while I attend group and being away from me for a short time has given her more confidence too, so it has helped us both.”
