I’m Michelle one of the Moderators here. I wondered whether some of the info within the Gingerbread site might begin to help in starting to find a way through this. Here’s a link that may be helpful, and you may find other bits of info within those pages that might be helpful:
I’m not sure whether you’re already aware of the service, but the NRFP network might also be helpful.
NRFP – A national network safeguarding the welfare of destitute families, adults and care leavers who are unable to access benefits due to their immigration status. https://www.nrpfnetwork.org.uk/
You could also get in touch with the Single parent helpline. Advisors may be able to guide you or provide you with signposts to services that might be able to support you further. Here are the contact details:
Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline – Freephone 0808 802 0925
