Description

Single parents were asked: "As a single parent I know where to go for practical help if I need it". The question was one of two questions asked to indicate the social outcome "Decreased social isolation/being part of a community". The second question relates specifically to the isolation aspect: "I have people with whom I feel able to discuss the issues I face as a single parent" [[Feelings of loneliness/ social isolation (change in)]]. This indicator was used by Single Parent Charity Gingerbread and nef Consulting in a 2012 study. These indicator questions were developed from existing surveys, such as the European Social Survey (ESS) (For questions see http://www.europeansocialsurvey.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=61&Itemid=580) and National Accounts of Well-being (Abdallah et al (2009) National Accounts of Well-being: bringing real wealth onto the balance sheet London: nef). This question was asked to single parents who attended Gingerbread groups. The question was asked twice to measure impact.
