About us


The SMBN was founded in 2019 by Jules. In 2021 members and loyal supporters of the SMBN Laura and Nehaya were invited to join Jules as partners. The three of them bring their own strengths and are committed to changing the narrative and outcome for single parents and all working parents in the UK. Read more here

Social Impact Review


With barriers to homes, finance, and skilled work in childcare hours, millions of us embark on a self-employed journey as a way to maintain our work ethic, despite these barriers; to continue to use our skills, and to improve our financial outcome. The Social Impact Review has been shared with leading charities, Government, Royalty, Press and Media in a bid to raise awareness of these barriers that impact the economy.

‘I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be part of the Single Mum Business Network, it gives me the opportunity to work alongside like-minded, positive and business savvy women. Julie is a pleasure to connect with, her knowledge and support are second to none as she pursues her passion for supporting single mums in business – I would highly recommend joining this supportive network!
