Can you help shape Gingerbread’s emotional and mental health support?

Posted 28 November 2023

We are looking at how we support single parents dealing with the emotional and mental challenges of parenting alone. To help us, we want to find out more about your experiences.

We would like to speak to 12 single parents who can spare between 15–30 minutes for a telephone interview with our researcher. It will be at a time that works for you and to say thank you, you will receive a £25 shopping voucher. 

We’re interested in speaking to single parents who feel their mental health has suffered in some way due to being or becoming a single parent. We would like to find out more about the emotional needs of single parents and the things that help and hinder you.

We would also like to hear your views on:

  • the support, advice and/or information you have had from Gingerbread in the past
  • how this affected your emotional wellbeing/mental health
  • your thoughts on what might help single parents in the future.

All comments will be anonymised.

Interested in taking part?

If you are selected to take part in the telephone interview, you will get a £25 shopping voucher as a thank you for your time!
