There’s a saying we use at Auckland Single Parents and it’s “Take it to group“. We say this because support groups are invaluable for single parents. It’s where we meet others in same and similar situations as us, feel normal and comfortable expressing ourselves – sometimes we just need friendly 'time out', sometimes we need to discuss something happening in our life and gain feedback and advice, yet most times its great to meet up and enjoy the company of like minded people.
Its also a wonderful way for new members to meetup with other new members and leaders in the group.
West Auckland Single Parent support meetings are held once a month – every fourth Sunday between 3pm – 5pm – in Glen Eden, Waitakere. The venue is off the road situated between the back of houses and a rugby field. It has a playground attached and a closed off area for littlies. The rooms are carpeted with both child and adult toilets as well as a kitchen with microwave and fridge.
Please bring a plate to share with the group. Coffee, tea, etc is provided.
