Where it all started

Sherisha Quintyne-Richards is the founder of the group and it was set up in October 2019 following her move to Worcestershire in 2018. Sherisha is a qualified Social Worker and has been since 2010. Sherisha has many transferrable skills and has a good knowledge of local support services.

Sherisha manages the day to day running of the group alongside a small team of volunteers who are also single parents.

I am a single mum of a beautiful daughter. It has been extremely challenging to balance my career and parenthood. I am still striving for the perfect balance. I like to say I’ve been winging it since 2011.

I am passionate about supporting, inspiring, connecting and empowering single parents.

Single parents have voices that need to be heard and I want to enable this through the group. I also want to dispel myths about single parents and to show that we can contribute positively to society.
