Anonymous, you mentioned that you feel part of the issue regarding groups is ‘poor promotion’. It would be helpful to hear your views regarding this so please private message me about any concerns you have. As well as moderating on our forum, I am the person who coordinates all of the Gingerbread groups across England and Wales so would be the best person for you to raise any concerns with.
Lonely dad, all of our groups are run by our dedicated volunteer coordinators. I’m sorry if there is not a group that is run locally to you. If there is nothing close, why not consider setting up your own? I am happy to discuss this with you, so please contact me at @gingerbread.org.uk">firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello everyone! I searched for groups in Kent and found nothing too!
Well I’m a single mum of 5 children in Canterbury. My children are 15, 13, 5, 4 and almost 1.
Would be nice to find people in same area who are in a similar situation.
Hi everyone,I’m a single dad from Kent,near dartford,lonelydad ive been there mate,trust me it will take time but things will get better,when me and my wife separated she was straight on the dating apps and meeting up with guys,all while we were still living under the same roof with our 3 young children,my biggest fear was another guy taking my place as a father to my kids,I woke up one morning and looked in the mirror and said I won’t let that happen,so ive become a better dad even though I was good to start with,I put my focus in to my kids and made sure they know who there dad is and I stopped worrying about wat my ex was up to and focused on my self,I set myself goals for the future,I look at that piece of paper every day,it’s a step by step process and will take time I woke up one day and felt great
