Hi I am Charlie…
I am the oldest in my family and my mum has brought me and my younger brothers up.
I am just finishing school and don’t know what options are out there. I know my mum is struggling and want to help but I don’t know how.
I look after my younger brothers while my mum is at work and hang out with my friends when I can.
Universal Credit/ Benefit change
I have just finished college and enjoyed my study but know that further education is not for me. I am interested in getting a job but need some financial support while I look.
Managing Debt, Budgeting and Saving
Now I am on benefits while I look for work I am finding it difficult to do the things my friends want to do.
Employment and Volunteering
I have always had an interest in construction and my mate was going to an open day at Preston Vocational center. So I went for a look around the center and had a taster of different trades
