Service description:
Bringing up children is undoubtedly one of life’s most rewarding experiences but as I’m sure you are well aware, it’s also one of the most challenging, particularly for one parent families. Today, there are around 1.9 million lone parents in the UK raising three million children, so as you can see, you’re not alone.
That‘s why back in 2005 Barclaycard developed Horizons, specifically to help one parent families.
Barclaycard had invested over £7m in Horizons which has supported over 450,000 lone parents and their children. Our aim is to reach a further 100,000 lone parents and their children through a programme of debt advice, financial literacy training, grants for education and training and our employability programme.
It is a completely free programme that brings together the knowledge, expertise and vast experience of Citizens Advice Bureau, Family Action, OPFS and Gingerbread.
With our support and their combined understanding of the needs of lone parents, we’re confident that we can make a real difference to their lives.
