We'd love to hear about your experiences at Christmas as a single parent!

Feel free to tell us anything at all here. Some ideas include: what you've done in past years, what you're planning to do this year, areas of the festive period you've struggled with in the past and how you overcame those, and any advice or helpful tips you have for other single parents - but this is a chance for you to share with us what matters most to you as a single parent at this time of year, so we welcome any and all stories you'd like to share.

These stories help us to make more content for single parents: we'll share the best advice and stories so that other parents can be inspired. If you're happy for your story to be shared with your name attached, please enter your name (just first or first and last - up to you!) and select "yes" in the consent section. If you'd like your stories to be shared but would prefer that they're anonymous, please select "yes" in the consent section and leave the name section blank (or feel free to put a pseudonym in the name field rather than your name). If you'd prefer us to use your story only for our research purposes and that it isn't published anywhere - anonymously or otherwise - please select "no" in the consent section.

You can tell us your Christmas story using the form below. Merry Christmas!

Tell us about your Christmas experiences and top tips!
  • Just your first name is fine. If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, you can leave this blank.
  • In case we want to get in contact with you to follow up. Again, feel free to leave this blank if you'd prefer not to be contacted.
  • Tell us about your plans for Christmas or past experiences you've had over Christmas as a single parent.
  • What advice or tips would you give to another single parent this Christmas?
    We'd like to be able to share your comments on our website and social media to help other single parents. Your comments will be attributed to the name you've given us, or anonymously if you haven't provided a name. Please tick the appropriate box to let us know if you agree to this. If you don't agree that's fine, your stories are still extremely helpful for us.
