Lone parents in Scotland are facing the most radical shake-up to the benefit system ever. If you work with lone parents and want to know how these changes will impact on them, then come to one of our information sessions.
Promoting supportive policies and services for lone parents and their children.
One Parent Families Scotland works to ensure that all families, particularly those headed by a lone parent, have the support, information and confidence needed to play a full part in Scotland's economic and social life.
We at One Parent Families Scotland are keen to hear your views on issues affecting you.
Here are the discussions we are currently holding.
Please note that the views expressed in the discussion pages are the opinions of others and do not reflect the views of One Parent Families Scotland.
What help do you think parents need?
OPFS believes it is important that policy recognises the strengths of lone parenthood and that the contribution that lone parents bring to society in caring for their children single-handed should be acknowledged. A national parenting strategy should recognise this as a unique challenge facing lone parents.

Mostly designed to save the Treasury money, many of the changes to Housing Benefit, Tax Credits and Child Benefit have already been implemented with more cuts to follow in the future.
