What we're about
Am aiming for this group to be a way for parents of any kind who don't have partners/family to meet up at local activities, particularly during weekends. I'm a Dad of two boys aged almost 5 and 6- my eldest recently diagnosed with autism, and my youngest a handful enough to have funding for a full time helper at school. I have a 30/70 split with their Mum, and we both spend all of our time either working hard or looking after them (and then working again on another business while they are in bed!). I love filling my weekends with them doing new activities and fun stuff, but it does tend to be just the 3 of us- and know there's other people out there who must be the same.
My plan is to find some existing events going on and arrange a place to meetup, and in the future we may extend it to organising trips out to places like softplay (though I appreciate everyone is going to have kids of different ages). Just want to find a bunch of interesting like-minded people really. I previously co-founded and grew a group on meetup called BathSPARK, which now has 800+ members, so thought it could be time to do it again!
All and any ideas welcomed- please feel free to message me
