Media panel:

One Family receives many requests from journalists looking to speak to people who are parenting alone, sharing parenting or separating. We are looking to build a media panel of parents who would be willing to speak about their story both openly and anonymously.

It is crucial to our work that the voices of  people parenting alone in all different circumstances are heard. By telling your story you can contribute to attitudinal change in Irish society, inform policy makers of issues directly affecting your family and feel empowered that you are making a difference to other parents who can not speak out for one reason or another.

If you were put forward for any interview we would support you and advise you beforehand. You would never be in a position that you would feel uncomfortable with and can change your mind at any point.

For the media panel:

  • You must be over 18.
  • You must not be a One Family client in the past six months.
  • Please consider all members of your child/children’s family and whether this would be a positive thing for all involved.

Policy panel: 

The Policy Panel is a group where parents can share their point of view on various policies which affect one-parent families

  • You must be over 18.

If this is something you might be interested in we would love to hear from you.
