The National Council of Single Mothers and their Children Incorporated has been an organisation for single mothers since its conception in the early 1970`s. NCSMC believes that having access to information and support, when and as required is empowering, it enables women to make informed decisions, and it better equips them to protect and support themselves and their child/children. Primacy is for single mother families contending with hardship.
One of our greatest strengths is our expertise and commitment in working with and for the advancement of women and children impacted by poverty, domestic & family violence, exclusion and gender inequality. NCSMC has advocated for equality of opportunity, financial security and access to justice, legal and human rights for well-over four decades. NCMSC`s knowledge is enriched through the wisdom that can only be gained through the lived experience, a unique and authentic vantage perspective.
Overwhelmingly single parent households are headed up by a mother, and sadly they are disproportionally impacted by poverty and violence.
