There are two million single parents with majority care for their kids in Britain today. That’s one in four families with children.
Single parents do a brilliant job. But paying the bills and juggling work and family life on your own can be a real challenge.
Less than half of single parents receive money from their child’s other parent. And children in single parent families are twice as likely as children in couple families to live in poverty.
The majority of single parents are working. But two-thirds of them say finances are still a constant struggle at best.
There’s no such thing as a typical single parent. Yet three quarters have experienced stereotyping or prejudice.
Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline provides advice and practical support for single parents. Including advice on benefits and tax credits.
You can also join a local Gingerbread Support group. You can meet fellow single parents who can share their stories and offer help and advice.Find out more about Gingerbread
