Financial help if you have children

As the  cost of living crisis begins to effect us all it’s always worth checking if we are receiving all we are entitled to, especially if we have changed our hours at work or have recently become pregnant or a parent. There’s a huge amount of information on the UK Govermnent website to help. You are still entitled to many of these benefits if you are in work. Even if things haven’t changed it can be useful to check if there’s anything else available.
