      I am a widowed mum with 11 year old daughter. I’m struggling with childcare during holidays and summer camps cost!
      Just looking to see what other working parents do.
      I’m currently signed off work due to stress and childcare/holidays part of the issue.
      Any advice welcome 🙏

      Hi Kazom, I don’t currently work at the minute however I was in the same job for 8 years. Now if you’re widowed which I’m so sorry to hear 😔 you should however depending on your earnings be entitled to help towards childcare. Depending on where you stay too some place put on playschemes which are relatively cheap. You should definitely be entitled to some help maybe contact citizens advice for more information and then get them to advocate with hmrc & benefit agencies. Take care D xx
