The Equal Opportunities Committee wants to know about the practical, social and financial challenges facing single fathers across Scotland.

It has issued a call for evidence from single fathers or those with shared custody of children.

There are almost 30,000 lone fathers with dependent and non-dependent children in Scotland, according to official statistics.

The committee, headed by MSP Margaret McCulloch, wants to know about any specific day-to-day issues, such as access to children, support services or financial assistance.
