"I feel like a 'shadow citizen'. I know there are lots of single parents out there but it's as if we are invisible "
There are 170,000 Single Parents in Scotland with over 291,000 children, 1:4 of families. Single parenting, when combined with poverty, can cause and intensify isolation and loneliness and impacts on mental health. OPFS is launching what aims to be the largest ever survey of single parents Scotland.
Funded by the Scottish Government Innovation fund, the feedback from parents will help OPFS, partners and government to develop an effective response to issues of isolation, loneliness and its impact on mental health among single parents which in turn links to poverty.
They also have a Microsoft Word copy of the survey.
