Gingerbread are experts in supporting single parents and those who work with, or support, single parents.
We are keen to develop and grow our network of single parent groups across England and Wales, and we believe that one way of doing this is for us to support partner agencies to set up and run their own groups for single parents – with the benefit of more than five decades of Gingerbread expertise in developing best practice to do this.
This is an exciting new opportunity for organisations (such as businesses, family hubs, universities, public sector) to work in partnership with us to increase the wellbeing of the single parents they engage with, by developing and running a single parent friendship group within their organisation.
The aims of a Gingerbread single parent group are to develop meaningful connections and friendships between single parents and to facilitate access to peer guidance and advice. Gingerbread has substantial data which demonstrates the positive impact and outcomes these groups have on loneliness, isolation, stress and the overall wellbeing of single parents.
Through a partnership approach Gingerbread will support you to co-produce a group model that fits your organisation and provide on-going support throughout the initial set-up and at three monthly intervals thereafter. The benefits to your organisation of supporting single parents include:
