"I am worried the £20 uplift will stop and I rely on it so much. I have so many new expenses since my daughter started secondary school. Due to CoVid restrictions if her bus arrives at full capacity because of the social distancing rules then she cannot enter on the bus therefore she needs a private taxi which costs £6. There is no way to gauge when that will happen but it has happened quite frequently. That is a lot of money to fork out when its CoVid related and would not have occured pre CoVid. I dont think the government who make all these decisions about whether or not to keep the £20 uplift going has considered what we actually need it for. Its a real struggle financially at the minute.
