£120 needed for school uniform
From St. Helens - 29 years old.
G is a single-parent living with her 5-year-old daughter in private rented accommodation. She works part-time for the NHS and claims Child Benefit and Child and Working Tax Credits. As G is on a low income, the school has referred her to Citizens Advice for financial assistance obtaining a uniform for her daughter. The local authority cut the support for school uniforms a couple of years ago.
