Hi, I have gone back to Uni after 6 weeks off Maternity Leave and in my 2nd Year. I'm a single mum and just applied for a 2 bed Flat (£79 per week). I get £500 NHS Bursary a month but have not took the student loan out.I also get Child Benefit (£82) and Child Tax Credits (£252) so overall I get about £824 a month. Would I be able to receive help with housing benefits? Seems a shame if I couldn't as I know Single Mums that haven't worked a day or been in education that get everything paid for, yet I'd be struggling even though I am trying my best to have a good career.
What are your thoughts?
