I will come clean also on what my job is - I am a welfare rights officer so I know the benefit system inside out, and I was a debt adviser many moons ago so I know a bit about keeping to a budget. I think both these things help me by relieving pressure, or worries that being on UC and having to budget must bring to those facing this system for the first time. In my current role I advise clients who have been affected by Covid eg through losing a job or furlough and the benefits system is a massive shock to them.
