One Parent Families Scotland (One Parent Families Scotland)
One Parent Families Scotland Edinburgh offers a range of support and information to single parents, including help in personal and skills development leading to family-friendly employment. We aim to ensure that single-parent families in Edinburgh have the support, confidence and contacts to play a full part in the economic and social life of the city.
We do this through 1:1 support in parents home or community venues. We deliver our successful Preparing for the future courses which support confidence building through to job seeking skills while linking single parents with each other. As an organisation, we understand the isolation that can come with parenting on your own, and foster relationships and the shared motivation that often comes with that. We also support parents with practical barriers such as childcare and benefit transitions that can hold them back from finding the right job.
