One Family is Ireland’s national organisation for people parenting alone, sharing parenting and separating. The parents and families we are privileged to support and represent are the reason why we are here and their privacy matters to us.

To tell the stories of the families we represent and to highlight the issues families face in their daily lives, we, on occasion, compile anonymous composite case studies (a mix of lots of different people’s stories) for use in our policy and communications work. When we use these anonymous composite stories, we accompany them with stock photos especially on social media.

We only use an individual’s story when they have volunteered a testimonial or if they have asked us to anonymously share their story. We only do this when the individual has given their explicit consent in writing for us to share their story.
