    I am 19 years old and a single mom of a 19 month old little boy. I have recently been offered and apprenticeship in business administration which is a big achievement for me. I still live with my parents and will be working 30 hours a week which I will be paid £102 for... am I entitled to any extra help or benefits as my bills come to £350 a month so will find it really difficult. The website says I will have to work 33 hours or more to receive extra help has anybody been in a similar position ? many thanks

    You should be able to get child benefit, child tax credit, and working tax credit, to top your income up. Look in to these....
