Groups, community hubs and activities

Being a parent on your own can be lonely at times. Meet other single parents at our family days or parent only groups.

Being a parent on your own can be lonely at times. Our local teams run different kinds of groups throughout the year that can help you to meet other parents like yourself. Meeting others in a friendly and safe environment can help reduce our stress levels and alleviate feelings of isolation, loneliness and anxiety.

Some groups are for parents only, while others are for families so your children can join in too. During the school holidays we run fun days out and activities for families. All our groups are free to attend.

We also offer information sessions on a variety of issues that single parents may face when bringing up their children.

Sessions are developed according to need and can be around:

  • potty training
  • Sleep
  • Literacy
  • baby massage
