Hi JP we only have local services for OPFS in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, North Lanarkshire and Falkirk. Unfortunately, we do not have any local services in Stirling. Our Helpline which is available to call, web chat, or post a question covers the whole of Scotland for advice and information for single parents. But unfortunately we do not provide any face to face services in Stirling area.

If there’s any other single parents on this forum in Stirling area maybe you could arrange to meet up. Theme for Single Parents Day (SPD) this year is ‘Celebrate with a cuppa’ to keep it simple and something that we hope most people would be able to do. One of my best friends lives too far away for us to catch-up in person so we schedule times to catch up by phone so that we are reserving time with each other when we are not busy making dinner, doing things for our kids etc Sometimes we watch a TV show together and chat through it as if we are sitting in the same room watching it together. SPD can also be a day to arrange a catch up with friends or family locally or hopefully we can gather enough single parents in different areas to meet up locally.
