What we're about
The Single Parents Meetup Group is a relaxed social support network that mutually coordinates activities for single parents with children. One of the many benefits of this group is for children of different ages to develop their social skills and identify with peers who have the same background. In addition, as a single parent it helps alleviate social isolation and provide the opportunity for adults to mix.
Activities include visits to playgrounds, kids friendly restaurants, BBQ's, and others such as bowling or the movies. The majority of activities will be child friendly but we may very occasionally have 'adults only' events. Parents without their children are welcome to attend if the event is appropriate (you can message the Event Host or Group Organiser to double check).
The group welcomes friends of existing members who are interested in a casual visit to a meet up, but if they wish to attend on a regular basis then they will need to become a member.
Anyone is welcome to host a meetup - please PM me (Justine) to arrange access. As an Event Host you are expected to be friendly and welcoming.
We have a 3 strikes rule - if you RSVP and do not turn up 3 times you will be removed from the group, especially for events that require bookings. We of course understand that life with children can be unpredictable - as soon as you know you cannot attend please comment on the event and remove your RSVP
The requirements to join this group are:
* Be a genuine Single Parent
* Recognizable photo of yourself
* Acknowledge that the group is for enjoying activities with your child/ren
If your request to join is declined please check the above criteria. If you are still unsure you are welcome to message me to ask. You are welcome to resubmit your request to join
* Or any other disruptive behaviour
* Any of these will result in you being banned from the group
We are part of this group ONLY to help each other, understand each other and have fun. This is NOT a dating group - becoming a single parent can be a very distressing time and different members may be at different stages of their journey. Of course we are adults and relationships may develop but we ask that you respect each other
I look forward to meeting you :)
