Good Morning – I am trying to search and find out what help/support there is out there for single parents who are both students and working.
I work 7 days a week – Monday to Friday in a school as a Learning Support Assistant (This is an apprenticeship) and I also work Saturday/Sunday for the NHS in a local Hospital.
I am currently finding it a little bit of a headache to find out what I am entitled too.
I have three children but only the youngest child (6) is living with me. The other two will remain with their Father. I am currently receiving no help/support what so ever. This includes child benefit (I applied two weeks back and I am still waiting to hear back from them).
I privately rent a shared property with another adult (rent is halved between the two of us).
Anyone have any help/advice where I start…. I am aware that under current circumstances things are a little harder to access but any help would be hugely appreciated.
