Being a single parent can bring many rewards, and also new challenges. Whether you’ve just become single, or are about to be, or have been for ages, it’s good to inform yourself so that you can make the best decisions for your family.
Here we offer advice, support and information around some of the most common topics single parents ask us about. If you’d like to explore any of these areas in more detail, you can talk to us through our helpline or webchat. You can also chat with and meet other single parents by joining the Gingerbread Community.
Use the filters to find information that suits your single parent journey. You can favourite content to come back to later by clicking on the heart outline. You will find your favourite content by clicking ‘Saved Pages’ at the top right of the webpage you’re on.
