    If I were in your position I would go speak to a trusted teacher or a school councellor like most schools have and tell them about your situation. Schools have programs in place for people in similar circumstances to you and have funding like pupil premium or bursaries that allow you a certain amount of money each month to buy the books and equipment you need. They'll also do what's best for you regarding your home life, you just need to talk to someone and hopefully things will get better. Your situation sounds hard and my heart goes out to you. Wish you all the best ❤️

    EMA doesn't exist in England any more.

    Your college should have a learner support fund?
