Gingerbread is the leading national charity working with single parent families.

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 want to create a world in which diverse families can thrive, and we won’t stop working until we achieve this vision. 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.
