Founded in 2017, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Single Parent Families is a cross-party group made up of members from both the House of Commons and Lords.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Single Parent Families formal purpose is to collaborate across the political spectrum to campaign against legislative loopholes that disadvantage single parents, and for positive representation of a category which is increasingly common yet still all too often stigmatised.
Gingerbread, the national charity for single parents, manages the APPG and acts as the official secretariat, as well as providing advice to the Chair and Officers.
