I've recently been estranged from my parents and I am living with my grandmother. I want to know what income proof and proof of estrangement I will need to provide for my student finance application.

Hi, thank you for your response. Will a letter from a vicar who has helped me through some tough times since I was a child be enough proof? And will I need to provide proof of income from my nan? She is retired and receiving a pension. Thanks in advance.
