Balancing working life with family responsibilities can be a challenge for single parents. It’s important to know your rights to flexible working and time off as a parent, as well as options for arranging childcare. We also have advice about learning skills for a new or different job, working for yourself and leaving work, if you decide that’s best for you and your family.
