We know that for many single parents trying to make ends meet in difficult circumstances, things can happen that you don’t expect.

We know that for many single parents trying to make ends meet in difficult circumstances, things can happen that you don’t expect. Particularly when these involve expenses you didn’t plan on it can make things feel out of control.

How we can support you

We can support you to step back and figure out what is going to help. Some of our local services can provide support with essential costs such as:

  • food
  • school uniform
  • baby equipment
  • clothing
  • keeping your home warm with hot running water.

We can help you to apply to other organisations offering grants, such as the Scottish Welfare Fund, which can provide cash grants or assistance such as fuel cards, food vouchers, travel permits, loaded store cards for the purchase of white goods and furniture.

And we can also offer support with costs around Christmas time.
