    I am confused about it, it is part time and I dont get funding of anything. I have depression also and I work casually for an education agency like once a week for 6 hours. Could I claim?

    probably not,as you'd have to take a job if offered one.https://www.gov.uk/jobseekers-allowance/overview Best to look for more work. and try to claim working tax credit and/or housing benefit.

    Income support is for carers and lone parents where the youngest is under 5.
