Financial help with childcare
Hi I’m a single mum to a baby boy who just turned 1. I have Multiple Sclerosis and am unable to return back to work due to a worsening in my condition after the birth of my son. I would like to put my son in nursery 1-2 days a week so I can can work on my rehabilitation so my question is if there was any financial assistance available towards paying for childcare as I am unable to find anything online and direct gov has nothing on this subject.

Question
I can't cope with life
I'm feeling so much stress from working and looking after my children. I have spina bifida and I'm an amputee, my mood is so low! I really really don't want social service involved or my home adapted because I want my kids to have a *normal* upbringing. I have no family only the kids dad side of the family. I can't carry on much longer

Question
Help to get into work as a disabled parent
So, I'm a 26 year old disabled parent who loves my children but now they are both at school and nursery I'm desperate to get into work. I have a Lot of qualifications but nowhere will employ me because i can't walk independently, so would struggle to get to and from work and get from 'a' to 'b' in the workplace. Do any of you work and if so what do you do? I'd love an admin or reception position preferably in the field of health and social care because that's my area of qualification. Is there any way I could get practical support to get to and from work or help in the workplace? X
