Hi there,

We know that being a single parent can be really difficult, I wanted to link you to some things which I hope you will find useful:

- Talk to others on our forum:  Lots of parents who feel similar to you are talking to each other on the forum. You need to be logged into our site to access the threads. I recommend that you join a conversation which has already begun rather than posting a new topic because many people wont see it.

- Find a friendship group near you:  you will need to be logged in to see the contact details for any of the groups

- Talk to an adviser: We have a monthly Ask an Adviser session where you can submit a question you might have. Its important to include as much information about your situation as possible so they can give you advice that best suits. Alternatively you could call the helpline and speak directly to an adviser:

Wishing you all the best, Elle
