"Asian Single Parents. An amazing place to surround yourself with love and support. It’s hard enough being a single parent : add in typical Asian stigmas and it’s a lot worse. I’ve known Aruna for many years now and I’m so impressed with her compassion love and energy. She’s building an incredible community where people can meet, talk, socialise, connect, support each other and have lots of fun too! From small dinners to holidays she’s organised it all... all from the goodness of her heart.. If you know anyone who is an Asian Single Parent: NOW is the time for them to join this amazing group...

"It's such a good support group and I've met amazing people" - March 2020
“ In this short space of time I have found ASP to be an inclusive, nurturing and really energising space. Aruna has made me feel very welcome and I have met some amazing single parents, which has been hugely inspiring. I have attended a range of events for both parents and for the children; all which have been well organised and hosted. The events are varied and it is a very active group so there has always been something suitable for my son and I to join in on a regular basis. Aruna is hugely inclusive and encourages us to "own" the group and is always open to input and suggestions (she even encouraged me to host an event myself!) I am very thankful to Aruna for setting this group up. Becoming a single parent is challenging for anyone but there continues to be a lot of stigma within Asian communities and connecting with others in a similar situation is very encouraging and inspiring. Thank you Aruna x ” - July 2019
