BRISTOL, November 2 /PRNewswire/ -- One Space,, the popular social networking site for single parents from Single Parent Action Network (SPAN), today launched a groundbreaking online Money Survival Kit to give immediate help to single parents facing financial crisis.

Working in partnership with SCOOP Aid (Sheffield Committee of One Parents), 'The Money Survival Kit' comprises a range of easy-to-use, interactive online resources, with practical solutions to help single parents tackle immediate problems such as mortgage arrears, preventing bankruptcy, CSA issues, and managing fuel bills.

As single parents are especially vulnerable in the current economic situation, One Space, our social networking site at Single Parent Action Network (SPAN) and SCOOP Aid has devised an effective and immediate way for single parents to tackle money and debt problems by following a manageable step by step approach.
