Holiday period - 20/12/14 − 01/01/15

From 20 December to 1 January 2015 our online forums will remain open but will not be moderated by Gingerbread staff.

If you are in crisis please reach out to family and friends, speak to your GP or if you feel in imminent danger of taking your own life dial 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency department (A&E).

If you are struggling or finding it hard to cope you might find it helpful to speak to someone who is trained to listen. The Samaritans helpline is available 24 hours a day: call 08457 90 90 90 or email jo@samaritans.org

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child please call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000, or the police.

I wouldnt look no further on this website you are probably better off looking on the WAY or the Widows Association who are dedicated to widowed parents.

Hi Eastburn

It is clear you are very upset about something and I, and I am sure others, would like to help but we really can't with only the information we have.

I have replied to another of your threads but please remember the messages you post on the forums are going to members of Gingerbread, other single parents, not Gingerbread the organisation itself.

There are many here would love to help but can you please give us a bit more information about what the problem actually is?
