Support the almost 1-in-4 UK single parent families
With lockdown lifting and summer holidays on the horizon, there are many things to look forward to over the coming months. From seeing friends to picnics in the park to days at the seaside, we are all excited about what the summer holds for us.
But for many single parents, the summer holidays are an additional source of financial and emotional worry.
For the almost one-in-four UK families headed by a single parent, the past 16 months has been an impossible balancing act. Single parents have had to juggle work with home-schooling and childcare very often without their support networks, thanks to lockdown restrictions.
Many single parents have been forced to reduce their working hours or take unpaid leave to look after their children.
A call to our helpline can make all the difference.
