Just wondered if anyone here knew about what benefits I'd be entitled to and how to go about it. I'm self employed with a very low income due to the recession. My partner is on training allowance from the job centre. He was on job seekers allowance,(lost his job 1 Week before Xmas), but has now gone on a HGV taining coarse run by the job centre, so now they call it training allowance. A pittance they pay every fortnight. We live on my parents property in a caravan which just isn't practicle when baby arrives. Want to get on a housing list, but they say I'm not priority,as not actualy homeless. Wanted to get income support, but they're about as helpful as a hole in the head. Would it be easier for my OH to make a claim? Would he get on better, as he's not employed, but on a training coarse run by job centre?? Any advice appreciated!
