One Parent Families / Gingerbread is an independent charity working to promote the interests and welfare of lone parents and their children.

Are you worried your parents are splitting up? If so, this website is to help you understand and feel a bit better.

A Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one or both parents and sometimes other family members. They are child-centred environments that provide toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown.

If you have recently become a single parent or if you have been one for years, or indeed you are on the verge of separating, you will find this a useful resource.
OnlyMums, working in partnership with professionals nationwide, gives practical, comprehensive and up-to-date information to support you through seperation and divorce.

Stepfamily Scotland understands the problems that stepfamilies face. If you are in a stepfamily already, or about to become part of one, Stepfamily Scotland can provide helpful advice and support.
