Weʼve raised £0 to Fund a Single Parents Club. It will be a building where single parents meet & connect & do kin for kin childcare, networking & socialising.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Being a single parent is difficult as I found out that friends and family are there to help but are not going through it so may not relate as much as they empathise.
Having children is daunting as it is so to have people in the same boat who can join the club and maybe watch your children while they get some work done or just watch a movie with them and you can run errands.
Or have a catch up with real parents going through the same as you.
Or even having someone who is in the same position as you to go out with point out a few things to you or just be there as they know would help.
The club would ideally be a house which would be rented and each room zoned or themed with security and home conforts. This will be a home from home with strangers becoming the community it takes to raise children.
An example is you can be upstairs studying/working while your child be in the play room downstairs with other parents/volunteers/staff.
The funding will help keep costs low as it would subsidise the costs making it affordable.
Affordability is a key reason single parents struggle to achieve their goals with this club I hope to help them realise that just because they have a child it doesn't stop there dreams.
