We must act and follow through to make the changes necessary to improve our societies. Sometimes it is even necessary to do what is wrong in order to do what is right.

By the words of Yoda …  Do or do not, there is no try.

Creating fairer systems based on justice, compassion and equality, eliminate prejudice and break cycles of poverty and abuse to reduce domestic violence and maximise emotional stability.

This is how we increase family safety and security and raise living standards.

By encouraging independence and empowering others  we strengthen individuals and family units and ignite the flame of hope for good things to follow.” Dianne Mead

Dianne and Sam Mead

Hi, my name is Dianne Mead.

I’m a mum, a professional and a single parent. This is a picture of my son Sam and myself.

We’ve been a single parent family for 10+ years.

My child is the most precious person in the world to me, as I know yours are to you.

My values as a parent are my top priority.  These obligations written and unwritten are essential to the healthy development of my child/ren whether  I am coupled or not.

Experiences both as a single parent and once the child of a single parent have solidified my passion for the purpose of this site and the quest to establish a charitable foundation to support the single parent:

  1. As an individual who is empowered to be their best; and
  2. As a parent


It’s obvious that a single parent most likely is restricted to a single income. We must face the issue that societies that revolve around the dependence of money means those disadvantaged or in shortage must be supplemented with some form of assistance.

For the most part challenges faced by individuals, are externally derived, no matter who you are or what structure of family unit you come from or live within.

For the lone parent the greatest influence is that of financial concern which compounds the challenges faced by the demand of simply caring for yourself and children and running a household.

By addressing external influences on families the strain on public health care systems and other resources will be markedly reduced effectively empowering families to function healthily and independently thereby reducing mental health issues, vulnerability and abuse whether emotional, physical or monetary.

Parents, no matter their social origin have the right to lead dignified and relevant lifestyles.

It is my experience and opinion that our current systems are deficient and inefficient with our state and national resources being abused, increasing, sometimes causing mental, emotional, physical and financial disadvantage to  individuals and families for whom these systems are meant to benefit.

” Raising happy health children is the responsibility of parents.

And it is the responsibility of society to support parents in their parenting role as individuals within communities.
