Its that time of year again when I worry sick about providing a decent Christmas for my children on Universal Credit. While toys are not an essential thing, children do not know that. I used to be able to survive better and budget better on income support. I find the twice monthly payments very challenging now on Universal Credit and I worry about what poverty does to children's mental health due to the poverty Universal Credit places them under.
