    I'm new to this and thought i'd ask for help. I'm starting my Masters in Social Work at Durham Uni in September. Mature student and a single mum. I've started to get stressed about where i search for funding. Know about the NHS bursary to cover fees but don't really know where i start looking for other money. I have started trawling charities for donations but was wondering if there is a government grant to help with keeping the kids in clothes etc. Any info regarding benefits where i look and any suggestions would be really well appreciated. I think as a post grad i am unable to access loans or student finance but i may be wrong. There is sooo much info out there i can't make sense of it all and was hoping someone else may have similar experiences. Any way i look forward to any help.
    appreciation in advance xx
