Gingerbread (charity) - Lobbying and Campaigns

Lobbying and Campaigns

Gingerbread is a political organisation, and has a policy and research team who work with elected representatives and other decision makers to influence policy and practice on issues relating to single parents.

Gingerbread has campaigned against negative stereotyping of single parent families. Their ‘Let’s lose the labels’ and ‘Single parents: you’re brilliant’ campaigns both challenged stigma against single parents.

Recently, Gingerbread has campaigned against government proposals to charge parents to use the Child Support Agency, and against cuts to Legal Aid proposed by the Welfare Reform Bill.

Famous quotes containing the word campaigns:

    That food has always been, and will continue to be, the basis for one of our greater snobbisms does not explain the fact that the attitude toward the food choice of others is becoming more and more heatedly exclusive until it may well turn into one of those forms of bigotry against which gallant little committees are constantly planning campaigns in the cause of justice and decency.
    Cornelia Otis Skinner (1901–1979)
