Supporting practitioners to support single parents

Practitioners working with single parents can now call a new Practitioners’ Freephone Advice Line on financial inclusion issues that affect single parents.

We provide:

  • An advice line and email service for advisers working at all levels

  • Free single parent awareness training for professionals

Funded by Comic Relief the service includes a free helpline, email service, case referral service, single parent awareness seminars and practice forums. The service also provides representation at various tribunals and courts.

If you are a practitioner who engages with single parents and would like to share and discuss your views join the new OPFS LinkedIn Group here

Free single parent awareness training at a location to suit your needs can also be arranged.

We welcome enquiries from advisers at all levels and experience.
