Post subject: Benefits
Hi please can anyone help advise me. I have just lost my job and I have been advised to sign on with income support as my babies are aged 3 and 5. I would like to go to college in September as I hope that would secure me a job at the end of it. Would I be able to apply for childcare to put my son in the crèche at the college. I just don't know what to do. My other option is to take a part time job 9.30-2.30 5 days a week I would earn around £150 a week would they pay for my sons childcare, and does anybody know if I could apply for a benefits top up as I would only be working 25hrs a week as a single parent.
