    Hi all,

    I am new in the forum, I hope you can help me. I am mom of a 1 year old boy and I broke up with my boyfriend about two months ago. I left the house that we was renting and I rented a single room in a shared house, I had to bring my baby in Italy to my mom who is looking after him at the moment as I work full time and could not afford the rent and the childcare costs alone. My ex-boyfriend is not helping us at all, he is broke and cannot give us anything and I do not have any savings.

    I was trying to look online to find out how to claim housing benefits for single parents but I found out I must have been living in the same borough for at least 2 consecutive years, which is not my case. So I then thought to find a shared house with other single parents but I was wondering if I might have the right to have free childcare. Anyone who has been through this and found a solution?

    What else I might be entitled?

    I am not a British citizens but I have been leaving in England-London for 4 years, I am not sure this can make any difference


    Thank you
