If you're a practitioner working with parents under 18, trying to advise them on issues such as childcare, housing and benefits can be complex as what they are able to access will vary depending on their circumstances. The organisation Gingerbread offers expert advice on all of these issues and are taking questions for their online advice session on the 27 August. If you want to ask a question just click here.
If you are not a practitioner and need advice on any of the issues above, then please call the Single Parent Helpline on 0808 802 0925 to speak to one of their advisors.
