This memo presents trends and risks for single parents across the European Union, and provides an overview of existing support mechanisms. We also highlight examples of practices supporting single parents in some Member States. The memo focuses on single-parent households as this type of families is among the most financially vulnerable groups in society. In 2017, single parents with dependent children recorded the highest risk of poverty or social exclusion among all household types.
