      You sound very positive in what also sounds like a difficult situation, which is very encouraging.

      Have you tried the Citizens Advice Bureau they have always been good at helping people understand benefits etc.

      Job seekers allowance, universal credit and income support come to mind to help you whilst finding work you can do. It’s online at gov.uk . I hope this helps.

          New here but feel I have to reply to your post.

          For the first time I’ve had to claim because of Corvid.

          The online claim did not go without problems but both times I rang the helpline and was helped.

          The actual benefit I am receiving is low, just enough to pay the bills as long as I shop sensibly.

          The Citizens Advice Bureaus are currently closed but you can email them, replies take days to come back.

          Altogether it’s non functioning system but you will get something


          Good luck
