Q. How has the pandemic impacted your monthly budget?
My energy bill has risen dramatically, as has my food bill. We also have less money coming in because my husbands business is struggling. I’m really worried that they are going to re-introduce the minimum income floor at the end of April, before small businesses have had the chance to get back on their feet. I’m pretty sure that my husbands sources of income - schools and theatre- won’t be operating as they were pre-pandemic by May!
