Dear Warringah Council, please consider SMS LIGHTHOUSE, Single Mums Support to occupy the property at 34a Howard Avenue, Dee Why in order to set up a Support Service for Single Mums from all cultures and nationalities.
Why is this important?
On our Northern Beaches in Sydney there are some amazing services, however, there is not 1 service that is set up to cater ONLY for the Single Mums.
SMS LIGHTHOUSE, Single Mums Support is a service who has a vision to set up a centre where mums can come to receive hand in hand support.
A place where they are loved and not Judged
A place where they can get genuine practical help. eg bread/clothes/furniture
A place that will advocate and mediate on their behalf
A place where they can be educated and taught strategies on how to get on with life as a single parent, letting go of victim mentality
A place where they can get assistance with admin and document writing
A place where they can get a hand up not just a hand out
A place where they can make friends and connect with other mums who understand their hardships
A beautiful place where they can just come for a coffee and a break while their children play in the back yard or the toy room.
This, SINGLE MUMS SUPPORT, is a service that makes welcome any single mum. Isolation is a word that does not exist within SMS.
The current stats within the Warringah Shire is that 12.2% of the family composition are Single Parents. Of this percentage 80.8% are female.
