My Name is Ziba Seymour,

I have three, children two of which live with me. Last year my husband left me, he found love with another woman. As any military wife will know when you leave the military family, you leave with nothing. I returned to the home I left 8 years ago and decided to build a new life for my little family. After attempting and failing to join as a police officer I enrolled in a college to become an electrician, and I still work one day a week at a nursery.
I was under the understanding Universal credits would support me with the cost of my childcare, and indeed they do but what they do not make clear is that you must find the funds to pay the childcare, show proof of payment then they will give you up to 85% back depending on your situation.
But if you are able to pay your childcare fees I ask why would any of us be on benefits?
So many single parents are unable to work or live up to their full potential because they are unable to fund childcare, we are being victimized for having children.
this needs  to change! The benefits system is in place to help people get back on their feet so they are strong enough to never return to the benefits scheme.
Yet Theresa May has us trapped!! chained to poverty, forced to struggle or like me drowned in debt.

Mr Winston Churchill once said " I have nothing to offer but blood, toil tears and sweat "
I to
have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, sweat and a voice. Please help me be heard, please help me help all of us.
