Family Referendum Wording Announced

The referendum to expand the definition of the family is a historic occasion which we welcome. For over 50 years our founders have been calling for equality for all families, as single parents who have fought against the odds to keep and raise their own children. Since its founding in 1972 One Family, previously known as Cherish, has been working to ensure a positive and equal future for people parenting alone, sharing parenting and those parenting around separation. The Family Referendum is a chance to offer symbolic reparation to one-parent families. All families deserve to be recognised, appreciated and cherished equally.  

Given the importance of this referendum we would encourage you and your community to register to vote. This is your chance to make a difference in the lives of one-parent families.
