There’s nothing so difficult as being a single parent. That’s why the team at our York law office have put together this useful list of single parent resources you can find near you.
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 (gingerbread.org.uk).
Single Parent Action Network (SPAN)
The Single Parent Action Network was a group that brought together various organisations and all sorts of resources for single parents across the UK. According to their site,
‘The website SingleParents.org.uk was born in 2008 and has supported thousands of single mums and single dads nationwide with every aspect of single parenthood from coping with separation and/or divorce, understanding Court procedures, surviving domestic abuse to sharing parenting ideas, information on work and benefits and so much more!
SingleParents.org.uk brings together essential information, expert advice, interactive learning, multi-media content, links to other support organisations and news for anyone who is parenting alone.’
Unfortunately, the group disbanded in 2016, but their site and all the resources on it remain available.
