I’m a working single parent with a 20 month old child, im currently in a professional role earning around 30k a year. I currently pay 3 days childcare and use the tax free childcare scheme! Im currently living with my mum due to not being able to afford to rent privately or have own my own home by myself. I have been placed on band 4 of the social care housing banding due to not being overcrowded. I really need my own place, me and my LO are sleeping in the same bed in one room and I really see no way of getting my own place. Has any one got any ideas of how i can be placed on a higher banding or know of any affordable schemes I can access to access housing? I have no savings due to the cost of childcare and really see no way out!!!
