Hiya i am just after a bit of advice please.
I am a single mum who works part tirme 21 hours a week, i receive my wages which is about 150 a week , my working tax and my child benefit so basically i am taking home 250 a week, out of that i am straight away paying out over 100 just on rent and council tax which leaves me a150 a week for bills etc.
I am told that when my son starts school i will not be intitled to school meals free or the school uniform grant of 35 ?? which people on benefits are entitled to, although single mums on benefits are on around 150 a week which is the same as which i am after i have paid my rent and council tax ???
is this right becuse to me this does not seem fair ??
if i am actually being left worse off ??
