Hi everyone 

First time posting. 

I’m single, on UC and have 2 children of primary school age. My disability has deteriorated and I’ve had to stop working. I’ve been assessed and UC have granted me LCWRA. In my flare-ups I need additional help with childcare in the support of breakfast club or afterschool club (when I need a little extra time to move etc).
