With so many changes happening at the moment, it can feel like every day there's a new announcement that affects single parents and their families.
At Gingerbread, we try and get single parents' voices out into the media. Find out what we've been saying on welfare changes, benefits cuts and more by reading our latest press releases.
We believe everybody should be given a fair chance of a decent job that lets them provide for their family. But for many of the UK’s 2 million single parents, something isn’t working. Our campaign calls on the government and employers to take a set of realistic actions that will open up work for single parents.
