    ive done the online search for Kent group meet ups and it came up with nothing within 50 miles of where I live, which is ramsgate, is there no single mums or dads in the Kent, south east area I’m only looking for friendship maybe another dad struggling to cope like I am, recently split up, ex has my 2 boys, already got a new man who’s met my kids and now sees them more then I do, just 5 weeks in, I’m living in shared accommodation with no friends or family down here I struggle so much daily while her life seems perfect and my kids are forgetting me 🙁

    No there aren’t any closer nylon geographically /time wise.

    Tunbridge Wells and Bexhill tend to be closest.

    Part of issue is poor promotion and involvement on top of Kent being so large so unless willing to travel any groups are unlikely to meet the needs of most kentish residents.

    That said there have been similar posts from those in North Kent and south London if you use the search box.

    Hi there

    Solomummy, 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

    Many thank, Justine
