Policy and campaigns

Together with single parents, we challenge social stigma, and influence government policy to ensure single parent families receive a fair and just deal.

Our policy and campaigns work focuses on the issues that single parents tell us matter most and we consult regularly with single parents to make sure we are working on the right things.

Our current priorities are removing the barriers to work, including securing accessible and affordable childcare, reforming the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) so that it puts children first and tackling poverty among single parents – looking at making sure the welfare system is fair and that the right measures are in place to support single parents with the cost of living.

We work with single parents, parliamentarians, policy makers and the media to highlight the need for change and to ensure single parents’ voices are heard and listened to.
