Suzanne's story, single mum of two

My confidence is so much better from dealing with One Parent Families Scotland and them helping me look into work because I would never have thought of some of the jobs I could have done. We don’t set out in life to become single parents and when you see other people in that situation, you know you’re not alone. 

"I think there’s always a wee bit of stigma that single parents are single parents because they don’t want to work and they just want to be on benefits."
