Participatory Research by Single Parents

Through a participatory approach to enquiry and influencing, these single parents generated new insights into the impact of government policies.

The ‘One Parent Proofing Toolkit’


This is for those organisations whose work relates to single parents and their children and in particular those who work on child poverty and employment strategies. Although the principle of One Parent Proofing can be applied to any policy or service, this toolkit focuses on policies, services and practices that impact on single parents’ ability to escape poverty by moving into and staying in employment.
