Q. What big changes have you gone through in the past year?
I lost my job due to redundancies in September and had to find a new one quickly so got a part time role in a supermarket which covered my bills and nothing else. Then my partner got furloughed so we lost 80% of his wage plus his regular overtime. Now my ex partner cannot pay maintenance due to also being made redundant so we are almost £1000 worse off a month but this isn't enough to get any help from the government because we do not live in a council property or a private let. We have no luxuries now, no caravan weekends, days out, no ice cream its depressing.
