About us

Fresh Start Ministry exists to support single parents with the challenges they face and their personal development. This can include issues regarding friendship, parenting alone, finances, social services and isolation.  


Fresh start helps and supports single parent families in a myriad of ways including counselling, prayer, advocacy, fellowship, networking, signposting and practical support.
