Life when you're single can be entirely happy and straightforward, or it can be practically and financially tricky, and sometimes emotionally difficult too.
Netmums is working with Gingerbread to find out more about life for single parents - we hope the information will come in useful as they think about what single parents most need in the next few months.
Gingerbread is the leading national charity working to help the UK’s 1.9 million single parents and their children. They run a free helpline for parents on 0808 802 0925 and lots more. Find out more at www.gingerbread.org.uk
