One of the impacts of divorce that is often unexpected but often hits hard is the effect this has on the parent’s own social circle. Suddenly you’re the gooseberry amongst married friends or the lone single sat alone on holiday at the hotel poolside while the children play. Friends don’t understand the new challenges you face or the loneliness when you’re home alone.
‘Single With Kids’ was set up by single parents for single parents and helps bridge the gap.
The wide range of events are all in fun and friendly group settings and create not only ready-made friends for the children but also the adults. You gain new friends who are all single parents and understand implicitly the challenges, children benefit from time with families “just like theirs” whilst adults get the chance to enjoy some adult company.
Organised events range from cheap summer camping trips through to 5 star luxury Mediterranean resorts with something for all tastes and budgets. All breaks are accompanied by a holiday co-ordinator who arranges events and get-togethers, focusing on bringing the group together and creating a foundation for a fun holiday but also firm friendships.
