Coronavirus, Support and advice
I am a single Dad and clients I had booked in have cancelled for the duration of the Coronavirus. Apart from Universal Credit is there anything else I can apply for?
This depends on what kind of worker you are – whether you are employed, self-employed, or have a small business and what your own circumstances are, for instance, have you no work for the foreseeable, has your employer offered for you to be a furloughed worker etc. There are various schemes for workers and I would direct you to Working Families.
Working Families is an organisation giving advice and information on employment issues to parents and carers.
They have a Helpline 0300 012 0312 which is open Mon 3-5, Tues 12-2 and Thurs 12.2 but you can also email your enquiry to them.
