There are almost 2 million single parents across the UK. They could be your family member, your friend, or a neighbour. You might have been raised by a single parent, or be a single parent yourself.

At Gingerbread, we know single parents are brilliant, but they also tell us that they face extra pressures during the Christmas season. Research from credit scoring company Equifax, shows nearly 60% of single parents feel less confident about their finances in the lead up to Christmas, and more than a fifth didn't know how they would finance Christmas.

This Christmas you can help more single parents access vital advice, support and information from Gingerbread. Together we can help more single parent families when they need us most. Find out more about how you can help below.
