    I’ve just taken on a second job. It means my daughter who’s 12 and in year 7 has to get herself  up and ready to go to school. She is very upset, it’s been a few weeks and she is still upset about it.

    If i leave and still have my other job, will I be sanctioned by universal credits?

    No as you have to take 12 year old to school. You took a job on thinking she would be ok and unfortunately she isnt so you are taking her to school so are unable to do the other job.

    You could also get in touch with the Single Parents Helpline, as they may be able to help answer your query or guide you towards the right channels. Here are the contact details:
