About Us

It’s estimated that there are over 163,000 single parents with 295,000 children in Scotland.

Our Vision

A Scotland in which all families, without exception, can prosper from life’s opportunities.

Our Mission

To ensure that one parent families have the support, contacts, and confidence needed to play a full part in Scotland’s economic and social life.

What We Do

  • Encourage and help single parents to believe in themselves, discover new talents, enter education, training or work and take up new interests.
  • Expand opportunities for parents and their children to be positive contributors to Scotland’s growth.
  • Provide vital childcare services – allowing parents to work, learn and expand their social networks.
  • Use investments by funders and sponsors to create new social capital.­

One Parent Families Scotland has been dedicated to supporting single parents since 1944. We already play an enormous part in enhancing the lives of parents and children, but we need to do even more – the special challenges we deal with are still there and on the increase.
