What kind of work would you enjoy?

Working with old people, working with animals, working with children? Or how about getting a little bar job for over the weekends or a restaurant or volunteering at a library gaining experience. Could you start doing some studying maybe to look towards when your children are older and in school?

I have seen on Indeed jobs for just weekend work, perhaps have a search on that job site, see if anything fits around your circumstances? I know it’s not easy tho but you may be able to find something out there that suits you.

Do you know that as a single parent you can earn just under £190 per month before UC take anything off your benefits?
