Gingerbread is fortunate to have ambassadors who support our work. In addition to our President, JK Rowling, these individuals help us raise the profile of Gingerbread in order to reach and support more single parent families.

Our president

JK Rowling

Gingerbread is delighted to have JK Rowling as our president. She has supported us since 2000, when she became our first ambassador.

JK Rowling has challenged assumptions about one parent families, offering millions of people new ideas about who single parents are, and how they came to be parenting alone. She has also generated a sense of pride among single parents. This has helped us bring about a real change in public attitudes.

It is gratifying to be a part of a charity which works so hard to support single parents at ground level, while giving them a voice in the national arena.
