    Hi everyone. I wondered if anyone can give me any advice on what to do. I’m mum of 1 y.o boy. At the moment I’m in Cyprus but I booked my flight on 14th of June. I haven’t got a family in the UK,so my friend in Norwich offered me to stay at her’s for couple of months maximum. I know I will have to pass habitual residency test before I can get any help that means I wouldn’t get any benefits for three months. Norwich city Council wouldn’t help me with accommodation as 2 years ago I signed off and handed Council flat back to them as after my divorce I  decided to go abroad. I have a job in Norwich on zero hours contract and I’ve been told by my manager that I can go back to work asap but I don’t know what to do with my little boy. I’ve looked at the cost of a childminder and I’m afraid I will be paying all my wage to cover the cost of it. Another thing is my shifts are 12 hours so I don’t think it’s possible to get a childminder. I was thinking maybe I can find someone in Norwich who is in the same situation as me…with a small child so we can help each other. I don’t mind paying the bills and look after little ones on my days off as long as I can get back to work.
