Following the announcement on Monday 16 March regarding Covid-19, we will be suspending our face-to-face work in Glasgow, Dundee, Falkirk, Lanarkshire and Edinburgh. This includes groups, courses and one-to-one support. There are details on the local service pages of how they can be contacted and the support available from OPFS in each area during this crisis.
Our priority as an organisation is continue to be available for single parents and their children. For the families we already work with, staff will continue to provide support in local areas through phone calls, texts and local Facebook groups. For single parents outwith those areas or who have not yet been supported by our local teams, we can provide support through our Helpline, webchat and ‘ask a question’ function on this website.
We appreciate this is a worrying time, with many uncertainties for families and we will continue to work to provide the most up to date and relevant information, advice and support for you and your children.
