The research: The Youth Advocacy Project aims to identify any gaps between support available to young people both online or in the community and the needs specific to young people growing up, or who have spent time growing up, in a single mother household. The first stage of the research in 2023 involved an online survey completed by young people who live or have lived in a single mother household. The main themes from this survey were concerns about the family’s financial security and respondents’ future opportunities in general.

To further explore these results, we plan to hold a series of focus groups with young people from across Victoria to see how they identify their needs (financial or emotional), where they find supports (if at all) and if there is more Council of Single Mothers and their Children can do to address any needs of young people that arise from unique circumstances of a single mother headed household. This information will be used to develop further advocacy for kids of single mothers and co-design solutions or recommendations with the participants’ feedback.
