Getting Started

Many single parents find themselves socially isolated; they feel overwhelmed with the challenges of raising their children on their own and can quickly run out of ideas of how keep their kids entertained and stimulated.

Single with Children is a group of people in the same situation. New members are often surprised at how quickly they make new friends, find the support they need and are no longer at a loss of what to do with the kids on the weekend.

Enquire today and drop in to an event. Take that first step to feeling connected and engaged. You’ll be made to feel welcome and included by our friendly members. They remember what it’s like to turn up to that first event and will look after you.

To find out more information about upcoming functions see the What’s On page.

Your children will meet other kids from single parent families. This helps them understand that they are not alone and there are plenty of other kids who have found themselves in a single parent family.

Your kids will love the exciting family activities we hold every weekend. It’s the fun way for your children to get to know others. Before long they will be wanting to go to all the events.

* Based on 2 children under 18 and attending two family events per month with a $5.00 subsidy per child per event.


 Remember:      ‘There are no strangers here … only friends we haven’t met.’
