Corporate Volunteering

Gingerbread, the national charity for single parent families have an exciting new volunteering opportunity within the corporate sector for people to use their volunteering hours to increase the wellbeing of the single parent workforce by developing and running an effective single parent group within their organisation.


The aims of a single parent group are to develop meaningful connections and friendships between single parents and to facilitate access to peer guidance and advice.   Gingerbread has substantial data which demonstrates the positive impact and outcomes these groups have on loneliness, isolation, stress and the overall wellbeing of single parents. 

The benefits to the organisation include: 

  • Increased wellbeing of your single parent staff
  • Professional development opportunity
  • Staff and volunteers gain leadership and facilitation skills
  • Improved workforce retention, and also increased participation/ engagement
  • A partnership with Gingerbread including full training, support and resources required
  • Improved workforce retention, and also increased participation/ engagement

This exciting opportunity is part of a lottery funded project being executed by Gingerbread to expand our group model across third party organisations in England and Wales.  

We are also exploring awarding organisations working in partnership with us a recognised accreditation mark which would demonstrate their organisational values and commitment to supporting single parents.
