We’re the leading national charity working with single parent families. We provide expert advice, practical support and campaign for single mums and dads.
For advice and information
We have lots of information on a wide range of issues, including benefits and tax credits, childcare, separation, work, housing and child maintenance. You can also take part in a monthly opportunity to ask our advisers a question online. If you can’t find the information you need on our information pages, you can call our helpline.
The Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline provides support and expert advice on anything from dealing with a break-up to going back to work or sorting out child maintenance, benefit or tax credit issues. Our friendly advisers will talk through your options and send you useful information. Your call is free and confidential.
