Gingerbread is an organisation for Lone Parent Families. It was the largest membership organisation providing help for 1.8 million lone parents and their children throughout England and Wales. In May 2007 it merged with The National Council for One Parent Families.

The organisation Gingerbread was formed in 1970 by a lone mother in London Tessa Fothergill her marriage had recently broken down and she found being a lone parent such a struggle she decided to set up a self-help organisation. The Sunday Times featured an article on her and hundreds of parents in similar situations got in touch with her. This response gave birth to Gingerbread.

And the name? Tess lived near a restaurant called 'The Golden Age of Gingerbread' and felt that Gingerbread would make a good name.

'Ginger' for gingering up support or getting help from the authorities
'Bread' the money and resources one-parent families need to support themselves and each other.

I am a member of Gingerbread,great organization! they have meet ups and holidays and if you join you receive a brochure once in a while,giving you advice,cheaper holidays(where applicable) only problem i found was at the time of my registering to the group,we did`nt have a local group in Southport! still dont think we have,most London based ,i found,but situated all over the country,so i believe! when my son was young i was thinking about starting a group at my local church hall,i enquired at the church but i never took it further,wish i did now,but never had the time!. Theres an idea for someone out there!!! who has time on there hands cheers
