Description

At Single Parent Services, we want a community in which families led by one parent can thrive as powerfully as any other.  To this end we offer a number of services, including counselling, social work, youth services and group activities.

Single Parent Services is a development between Link House and Birthright Waikato Trust. Through Single Parent Services, you will find all the services of both organisations that you can access. One set of services is easier for you than two!

Social work

Social workers are for practical support. If your family are navigating the way through different or changing benefit entitlements, negotiating with a school about entitlements for your child or working your way through the courts or any other systems that seem confusing, a social worker can help this make sense and lend a bit of a helping hand or a pointer in the right direction.
