    To support the UN International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, a series of events took place across Scotland between 14th-20th October 2013. Highlighting the daily realities of poverty and demonstrating efforts to address them, the events took place against a backdrop of continuing austerity measures, welfare reforms and predictions that poverty and inequality are expected to increase in the coming years.

    As part of this series of events, this half-day seminar focused on research commissioned by the Glasgow Centre for Population Health into the challenges and opportunities facing lone parents with young children moving into work, as part of the welfare reforms. It also provided opportunities to hear the direct experiences of lone parents in Glasgow, the role of the voluntary sector and panel debate.

    Presentations were given by Dr Helen Graham from the Employment Research Institute at Napier University in Edinburgh, and Professor Ronald McQuaid, Professor of Work and Employment at the University of Stirling.
