Single Parents In Bridport Needed To Keep Service Going

Bridport Sign

8:16am 25th March 2014

Single parents in Bridport are needed to keep a vital service running.

The Town's Children's Centre and the charity Gingerbread runs a local support group that gives single Mum's and Dad's the chance to meet and discuss the challenges they face as lone parents.

They can also have a cuppa and a bacon buttie while their children meet other kids and make friends.

The group is led by the parents and they need more people to join to keep them going.

One parent who uses the group said:

"Since becoming a single father of two I've understood some of the unique challenges that single parenthood presents - particularly the difficulty of juggling family time, work and my own personal time. It's useful speaking to other single parents to exchange stories and tips and I'd welcome an opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation."

Cllr Rebecca Knox, Dorset County Council's Cabinet member for children's safeguarding and families, said:

"This group can offer much needed support to single parents. Being a parent is a tough job, but it is particularly hard if you're on your own. This group allows single parents to meet others that are in a similar situation, in a friendly environment and also get any advice or support that they need."

The next session is on Saturday 29 March from 10am-12noon at Bridport Children's Centre on Skilling Hill Road.
