Hi I split from my ex twelve months ago, I work full time, so I am not entitled to much help, I have recently applied for help with new school uniform from our local council but was knocked back (my son is starting high-school) their father gives me the minimum amount and doesn’t support us financially I was just wondering if there are any other avenues in which I could explore for help with the costs of living. I do claim Universal Credit but must admit I struggle to keep my head above water most months.
We used mostly second hand school uniforms when money was tight. Suits from charity shops and food from food co-op and mostly yellow ticked items. But sometimes Aldi is cheaper than reduced at Sainsbury’s, is my experience. Furniture through church notice board or Freecycle. It is a struggle as we working poor are unfortunately not time rich.
