So I’ve been offered a 2 bedroom new build flat through a housing association after being on the council list. The rent is £128 a week and I can move in whenever.
I work part time and earn just over £1000 a month. I’m pregnant and due in February and I don’t want to take the property if I can’t afford it.
Does anyone know what entitlements single parents get because I’ve heard so many different things
You need to go to the Entitled to website;
or book an appointment with Cutizens Advice Bureau or Welfare Rights Unit if you have one in your local authority. Some children’s centres in my locality have benefit surgeries.
