    Hi Gemz83, Thank you for posting on our forum.  I’m Carmen, one of the moderators here at Gingerbread.  I hope it won’t be too long before other parents start chatting with you.  I’m sure there will be others who have been in similar situations.

    In the meantime I can recommend that you call our single parent helpline.  The advisers will be able to talk you through what’s happening now and will be able to help you to explore your options.  It may take a little while to get through so please be patient.   Here are their details:

    • Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline – Freephone 0808 802 0925

    Opening hours:  Mon 10 – 6, Tues 10- 4, Wed 10 – 1 & 5 – 7, Thurs 10 – 4, Fri 10 – 4  They can be busy so callers can expect to wait up to 20 minutes before the call is answered.

    I hope this information is useful and I wish you the best of luck for the future.
