Closure of HSSF scheme

Back to news

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has announced that the Help and Support for Separated Families (HSSF) mark scheme and the Sorting Out Separation (SOS) website have been discontinued.

Resolution will no longer award the HSSF mark and will be removing all references to it. The DWP has requested that mark holders remove any reference to the mark from all communications, online profiles and websites by 31 March 2020.

Alongside the review of the HSSF mark and SoS, the DWP carried out further digital research which sought to understand how people accessed information on relationship support online. The full report can be found here.

Should you have any further queries relating to the HSSF mark, please contact the DWP Support Team.
