      What is known about this topic?

      • Social networks play an important role for vulnerable families in mediating isolation and stress.
      • Finding and engaging families with limited social networks are a major challenge.
      • Characteristics of individuals' social networks impacts on their capacity to link to both formal and informal social supports.

      This paper adds:

      • an analysis of the social networks of sole parents who are socially isolated and not connected to services;
      • a fuller understanding of the role informal networks play in facilitating social support;
      • the capacity of social networks to be a bridge to other resources is very limited, and services are not taking the opportunity to assist parents to access and develop social support.
