Hi I am a single mum of 2 about to embark on a full time Complementary therapy course which due to there being no offer at any academic institute within a 100 mile radius, I’m doing through a private school. This is becoming an issue as all avenues of funding (regardless of single parent status) are applicable to academic institutions. I am unemployed, on Universal credit and have 15hrs for my youngest son. My daughter is at junior school.
Anyone else doing a similar thing and has found a way around it? Or getting financial help with additional childcare, travel etc?
I am now considering trying crowdfunding as all other routes seem to be brick walls. Anyone else tried this and has some advice?
Any advice/shared experiences would be greatfully received.
