Become a One Family member
Help us to build a nationwide movement of people who are committed to equality for all families.
One Family has worked and lobbied on behalf of one-parent families for nearly 45 years. Many of the issues we’ve fought for in the past have become basic rights in Ireland (read Our History to find out more) but there is still a long way to go. Life for many one-parent families in Ireland remains a battle to overcome prejudice, pressures and poverty with 60% of individuals from these households experiencing one or more forms of deprivation (EU-SILC 2014).
One in four families with children in Ireland is a one-parent family with over half a million people living in a one-parent family so these issues directly affect everyone. Membership of One Family is free and open to anybody who is a member of a one-parent family, anybody who works with one-parent families or people who simply care.
