I have a lot of respect for the work Ruth does, to date alone and unfunded, to ensure that we do not face various discriminations due to our status. As I discuss barriers I realise that as a protected characteristic we would be better placed to fight for equal opportunities to home ownership, work, business and finance.
Ruth and the Single Parent Rights Team are currently conducting a short, anonymous survey into the employment experiences of single parents. We’d really appreciate you taking five minutes to complete this as the more data we can gather, the more politicians and the media will listen to the results. The survey is open to all UK based single parents, whether you are currently in paid work or not.
