About us

Today, there are two million single parent families in the country. We champion their voices and keep their needs at the heart of everything we do. Our objectives are to: - support single parents to achieve stability - enable single parent families to thrive - campaign for single parent families to be valued. Our national helpline provides expert professional advice to around 9,000 callers each year. We provide a wealth of information on our website and friendship groups across the country providing practical and emotional support. Together with single parents we campaign to change the systems and attitudes that hold them back.
