    I was full time at uni, you get your student loans/grants and they take that away from universal credit. I ended up with only around £400 in UC and loans/grants are paid 3 times a year so it’s really all about budgeting. In the summer break UC increases as no student income during that time. It was a real struggle – they disregard a little for books etc but not much at all. Although I’m now repaying my student loan so effectively they class it as income although it’s repayable! Best of luck x

    My partner walked out on me and the kids two weeks ago (aged 5 & 8 months) he was spending a lot of time out with his friends and wasn’t giving him family any time, I finally broke down; sat and told him how lonely I felt and that’s when he told me he hasn’t been happy for a while. I’m praying there’s no one else involved but right now I’m utterly devastated. Just know you are not alone 💖

    Hello,

    I hope you get to see this! I have a little boy of 5 years and a girl of 8 months. My partner walked out a couple of weeks ago and I’ve now realised how much I depended on him and the lack of social life I have. I live in Ipswich and do drive so would love to meet people with kids of a similar age 😊 x
