Divorced, separated, and widowed women are heavy-laden with various commitments and responsibilities either from the financial, social or emotional aspects. Excessive obligations can have a negative impact on a person’s well-being, as well as the well-being of their children and dependents. Thus, support from a variety of sources is required to help single mothers overcome their difficulties. The purpose of this study is to identify government and non- government organisations that have implemented social support programmes for single moms. Additionally, this study will assess the economic, skill, and psychological needs of single mothers in order to facilitate the provision of improved social support programmes in the future. Literature review and content analysis are used inductively and deductively to obtain thorough and complete analysis on this issue. The study found that social support from the aspects of family and society, financial and welfare as well as moral support are essential aspects for single mothers in moving forward new life with their children. Implementation of Islamic social support system through enforcement of wali concept is proposed as the initial steps to be taken in ensuring single mothers’ welfare at micro level and government support through various aids and facilities for the single mothers at the macro level.
