What we're about

Are you in a relationship with someone who has children with another person? Whether they live with you on a permanent basis, part-time, or are just a part of your partner's life, this group is for you!

Being a 'step' parent (or whatever you prefer to call the role) is uniquely challenging and often lacks the level of understanding and acceptance available to others within a 'traditional' family.

Being part of a blended family can often make you feel as though you have the best of both worlds, and at other times like you’re in an impossible situation that no one else seems to understand. Sometimes we just need to let off steam, or meet others who are going through similar challenges. Online advice can also seem negative and has the potential to make the situation seem hopeless and like there’s no solution.

This group isn’t about solving family rifts, but it IS supportive. West Yorkshire Social Step Parents has a positive outlook that believes in the power of good conversation and the odd glass of wine. Feeling yourself, feeling like there’s support there when you need it and feeling understood are the crucial foundations for building a strong loving family.

Whatever your situation, whether you have your own children or not, this friendly group of other step parents will give you an outlet when you need it and hopefully allow you to make some real friendships with others like you.
