I have been dealing with a few money issues recently and have been struggling to do my shopping. I have been trying to find jobs but haven’t found the right ones that I like. I was wondering if there’s a website where you can get money coming in or something that would help me out with my money problems

    I'm not sure I understand what it is you are looking for? I suppose if there was a "website where you can get money in" we would all be on it and not on here?
    On a more serious note if you have debt problems could I suggest you speak to:

    @lewissayner do you have a discretionary fund you can claim in England we have one in wales  you fill a form in on line and if your allowed money will be put into your account within two days it doesn't have to be paid back your allowed 3 payments  over 12 months

    Depends what you mean by websites that can help get money coming in, but I know a lot of people sign up to survey websites and do paid surveys online to make a little bit of extra money, though it's usually only a couple of quid but could still make a difference if you're really struggling.  I've used a few, some of them I got fed up with as nearly every survey would kick me out halfway through because I "didn't fit the criteria" and/or would bombard me with annoying popups and ads, but one I do like is called Prolific, which only has surveys run by academics and universities and is by far the best I've ever used.  It's a bit hit and miss, some weeks I might make £10-12 and nothing at other times, and there are short surveys that range from a few pence up to longer ones worth £1-2 but it's a little bit extra which never goes amiss when you're skint.  You can cash out to Paypal once you reach a fiver, which is very handy and very easy to do.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling with money @lewissayner. Are you currently claiming any benefits?

    Have you considered accessing a food bank, if you're struggling to get food in?
