Child Maintenance Webinars

OPFS will be hosting free webinars on Child Maintenance for anyone working with single parents in Scotland. 



Child maintenance can significantly boost the income of a single parent household. However, only 1 in 2 separated families have an arrangement where some child maintenance is received, and just 1 in 3 have an arrangement that is satisfied in full.

This webinar is aimed at practitioners in Scotland who want to learn more about supporting single parent families and boosting their income. The webinar will be led by Lisa Wright, who is an experienced Advice Worker at One Parent Families Scotland and a strong advocate for a fair and child-focused Child Maintenance system.

Topics covered: 

  • What is Child Maintenance?   
  • Claiming Child Maintenance 
  • Common barriers to claiming Child Maintenance and how to overcome these. 
  • Where to get support as a practitioner and as a parent. 

All webinars will be from 10-11am. Select your preferred date and sign up using the links below:
