Gingerbread was one of the first ever organisations dedicated specifically to helping single parents. Founded in February 1918, they have provided advice and support, a platform for meeting other single parents, and help with jobs to those who need it. Besides providing direct assistance to parents, they have historically fought for reforms e.g. in the areas of housing access and child maintenance.
The Gingerbread community of forums and groups can be accessed online through their website.
Dads Unlimited support the wellbeing of dads through family breakdown by mentoring them, helping them to achieve a positive ongoing relationship with their children and by improving co-parenting relationships.
