We have been working with single parents since 2014, and we work closely with our current partner Single Parents Wellbeing.
Single Parents Wellbeing has set up ‘wellbeing workshops’ where the parents share tips and experiences with each other so they feel less alone and more able to cope with everyday challenges. We are helping to measure how helpful the workshops are and how they might be improved.
Stories from the programme
Rachel's story: the loneliness of living as a single mum
Rachel talks about relationship breakdown and the loneliness of living as a single mum. She co-founded Single Parents Wellbeing, a social enterprise that empowers single parents, after experiencing extreme loneliness after separating from her husband.
Talia's story: my experiences of loneliness and anxiety as a young mum
Talia first experienced loneliness when she moved away from her family to study at university. She found a lot of support when she began working for Single Parents Wellbeing and this helped her to share her experiences with other people who had similar experiences.
