Advice and information for young single parents
Becoming a parent is exciting at any age. You will have lots of things to consider, including your finances.
With the assistance from Gingerbread Charitable Org we have set out some useful advice and information for young parents who are not living with their child’s other parent.
- First of all, let’s look at your finances.
- If you’re under 18, we have an easy to use tool that helps you find out what support you may be entitled to.
- Other young parents can use this benefits checker.
- If you’re still expecting your baby, we have advice for single parents to be.
- It’s also important that you look into setting up a child maintenance arrangement with your child’s other parent.
Studying as a single parent is no mean feat, but many single mums and dads take on the challenge successfully. Visit our advice on returning to education.
Looking after yourself
There’s lots of help and support available for new parents, and it’s important to make sure that you’re looking after yourself and your own wellbeing.
Share your experiences and get support from other single parents. Joining a Gingerbread friendship group or chatting to other single parents in the Gingerbread online forums can be really helpful and supportive.
