    I am a 19 year old single mother of a 18 month old little boy, I am due to start an apprenticeship in 2 weeks time. I still live my parents and my child care costs will be around £100 per week. I will be working 30hours and earning £99.00 per week. The benefits calculator online has told me I am entitled to the following benefits does this seem accurate as I feel like it is too much:
    Child Tax credits- £62.00 per week
    Working tax credits-£155.00 per week
    Child Benefit-£20.70 per week
    70% contribution to my child care costs (tax free childcare)

    Anyone been in a similar Situation thanks in advance
