I’m a lone parent after full custody ( zero CSA ) , I have lost all my friends I actually haven’t spoken to an adult in months and no longer turn my phone on unless it is to pay a bill. My children are now 9 and almost 7 and can say it is no better almost 2 years on.
I gained no support from any charity after the police moving us in the night those years ago, 1 bankruptcy and living on disability ( mental health ) I have been more suicidal and more inclined to phone a section 20. It is unbearable the U.k is not an accommodating place as a single parenting especially one who has been moved to the middle of no where.
The solitary suicidal six weeks is almost over….. I am sorry for the negativity but I see absoloutly nothing positive apart from children are safe.
The saying it takes a village to raise a child is lost.
I am in a similar position, relocated to safety with my children 7 years ago and have had sole full custody ever since! Losing my job, family and friends all at the same time. I don’t know anyone who has the same set up as me, most of my single mum friends have ‘time off’ and family support. It is very isolating having no-one to help. Happy to chat whenever you need an ear
