    Hi Mmmm

    I’m sorry you have found it hard getting through to the helpline but please do keep trying. I think it will be useful for you. Meanwhile, here is some information on our website about benefits and tax credits. Benefits, tax credits and universal credit | Gingerbread

    I tried social services  universal credit  and no one can settle  anything  for my child. I’m nhs nurse so my job is not as flexible and if nothing comes  I’ll need place him adopted. It’s also about money.

    My nursery  is at St Thomases  because  is open 7 to 7 but I can’t even rent here. Southwark Council  page for home search doesn’t work.

    Could child support services chase the father for child maintenence. Do you know who he is? Is he working?

    Even if he doesn’t see the child he is still legally responsible for providing for the child financially at the very least.

    Speak to your employer. Flexible working applications must be looked at and reasonable accommodations made if they can be by an employer around parents. I’m sure if you speak to them about your situation and fifferent options to work flexibly. Surely in a hospital there must be so many in the same situation. I’d contact hr.

    Im a care worker. Usual shifts are 12 hours as an example. I work less but still fit into a package which the company provide despite it being a shorter day.
