Support for you and your family
Last updated: 22/09/2021
Our local services offer different ways of connecting with support workers and other single parents.
Our groups give you the chance to meet other people who know what it’s like to be a single parent. Our one-to-one support can help you with some of the practical and emotional issues that affect your health and wellbeing.
Things are a bit different at the moment because of coronavirus. It’s difficult time for many single parents and families and we’re still here. We are still supporting parents and families online, by phone and in person (by safe distancing). You can find out what we’re offering in local areas at the links below.

When you’re part of a group of like-minded people you can feel less lonely, make friends and learn something new. Our groups range from gardening and walking to confidence building and mindfulness.

Speaking to a support worker can help you work out what you want from life and how to get there. Many parents feel stressed and lonely and have money and housing worries. Feeling in control of these and other aspects of your life can make you feel better. When you feel better your children do too.
