I made a Twitter page to link to my blog about lone parenting. Go follow me here!
OPEN work at community level linking with various lone parent groups and individuals; they aim to ensure that all one-parent families are able to access the support and services they need.
They continually advocate for the quality of life and opportunities for lone parents; often campaigning at national level. OPEN is governed by a Board of lone parents; thus, ensuring those leading the organisation have a good understanding of the challenges facing lone parents, having personal experience themselves.

In Longford the HOPE group (Honouring One Parent Equality), comprising of a diverse group of women from a variety of different cultures, background and circumstances; however, they are all lone parents and provide each other with peer support. They address issues facing lone parents and are supported by Longford Women’s Link.
