a few examples of media work i have done on issues faced by single parents
I have featured on BBC News, Channel 4 News, Sky News and ITV News discussing different topics impacting single parents.
I have also featured in the Metro, The Guardian, Financial Times, Glamour magazine, Le Journal du Dimanche, The Independent and a regular cost of living panelist for the Daily Mirror.
All of these opportunities have been through Gingerbread, the national charity for single parents.
Single parent strength – a photo essay
Carly: I’m a single mum to Ezra, who’s three. I was in a relationship with someone and, unplanned, fell pregnant. I wanted to go ahead with it and he evidently didn’t. So I’ve now made the decision that it’s just us until he’s ready. The everyday challenges are the relentlessness of it. My son’s mixed-race. I’m a white woman. So I think about that a lot – how do I get that right? I’m proud of the relationship I’ve built with Ezra. He’s a really happy, thriving young boy. And I can say that was me, which is a really nice thing.
