Single parents often find the money side of life tougher than two parent families, making saving money an even more important part of everyday life. The One Space parenting site is dedicated to single parents, an excellent money saving resource and support network.
The site includes a lively, friendly, supportive online community for single parents and offers the support of a team of experienced facilitators. It’s full of handy information, news, interactive learning opportunities, exciting multi-media content and links to more support organisations. Here’s a link: One Space single parents support site.
Saving cash with One Space Money Survival Kit
One Space has also created a brilliant Money Survival Kit, a guide to making the most of your income. It’s designed to help lone parents, whose complex financial affairs often reflect the difficulties in their personal lives: debt, housing issues, problems with benefits, coping on low pay, getting tax credits, dealing with insecure jobs, finding childcare costs, CSA and even health problems.
The Money Survival Kit is full of information and practical solutions, including a budget calculator to help you manage your money effectively. If you need extra help you can even get confidential advice via email.
A lot of the information on site is also really useful for two parent families, singles and students sharing accommodation, so give it a try and see what you can learn. Here’s a direct link to the One Space Money Saving Kit.
