Aspects of the lives of 15 families, all headed by a lone mother, are explored.
The account is based on parents'answers to a questionnaire, with follow-up interviews, about their support networks and experience of disability in the family.
Findings indicate that mothers were affected by the lack of partner support, availability of transport and fears for the future.
These issues often led to a degree of isolation for the family as a whole, rendering the need for a sympathetic, integrated approach by professionals to their family situation even more vital than is the case for two-parent households.
