Everywhere I turn has been a dead end. Single parent life is tough enough. Only three weeks ago I was put on a training course with a view to work at the end. The first hurdle was finding money for childcare to enable me to return to the workforce. Back and forth I went speaking to the DWP about borrowing the money. Of course they wouldn’t lend it to me until I received a contract of sorts. Then during the course I realised there may not be times I would be on time to retrieve my child if there was a job offer. Now what?! It is back to the drawing board I return and in my place I shall stay.
