Abstract

The article clarifies single mothers’ social needs and interests. Suggestions for improving the sphere of social services provision and new forms of social support for this category of citizens have been made on this basis. It has been determined that organizational content and socio-economic aspects of social services have to be developed and improved. The article defines that it is urgent to create conditions for the inclusion of the non-governmental sector in the provision of social services to single mothers, expand the range of services oriented towards the prevention of social orphanhood and form conscious paternity and social rehabilitation. The results of the study showed that it is expedient to initiate new forms of social support at the community level, including special education courses and single mothers’ training, social rental service, social specialized baby shops, helplines, hot lines, children’s rooms and baby rooms, courses for future mothers and young mothers, self-care groups, leisure centers at the place of residence, etc.
