Ensuring that the established political parties are aware of our objectives.

How we work
Sweden’s Remarkable Single Parents strives to be a well-established organisation, comprised of active local associations and networks.
We work to influence opinion on issues related to single parenthood, we wish to reflect society’s diversity with regard to gender, age and ethnicity, and we are independent from political parties and religious organisations.
We work for equal parenthood in reality, where single parents enjoy the same social and economic conditions as nuclear families, to provide for their children’s needs
