Single Mums Business Network

The Single Mums Business Network is designed to provide support and exposure to businesses launched by single mothers, while dispelling stigma and misconceptions that single mums are ‘work shy’.

Driven by the passion of its founder, Julie Hawkins, SMBN raises awareness of the real issues surrounding the disconnect between the life of a parent and expectations around working life.

Whether individuals are new to self-employment, just launching a business, or a seasoned business woman understands the journey of a single mum in business, SBMN understands how vital it is single mums support each other not only to thrive, but to correct those misconceptions.
SMBN offers its members a host of support, ranging from access to the Employee Assistance Programme to a calendar in virtual and live events and meetings; all built on a community of like-minded women who are single parents with a strong work ethos and real commitment to personal and professional development.
