Gingerbread

Gingerbread supports single parent families in the UK. Our mission is to champion and enable single parent families to live secure, happy and fulfilling lives.

Since 1918 we’ve been supporting, advising and campaigning with single parents to help them meet their family’s needs and achieve their goals.

We are working to create a world in which diverse families can thrive. Whatever success means for a single parent – a healthy family, a flexible job, stable finances or a chance to study – we work with them to make it happen.

Single parents can often feel isolated and ashamed. Our national network of friendship groups give single parents a community to learn from and be supported by, as well as the opportunity to see they are not alone.
