    Hi there,

    I return to work in August part time. I have found a childminder for my baby, but I have to pay the fees upfront before I can claim anything back from U.C. I have exhausted all lines of credit with the bank and already used up my U.C advance payments. If i can not afford the upfront childcare costs, I can not return to work. Any advice? thank you.

    I think you can ask your work coach for a payment of up front child care costs from the flexible support fund for the first month. Don’t believe you need to repay that but good to check.
