Hi,

 

I'm a lone parent currently receiving income support, housing benefit and child benefit.

 

I've just received a date for ankle surgery and this will leave me on my feet for 6 weeks.

 

Is there any additional support available or will I have to refuse the surgery that I've waited a year to have?

 

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I don't think there is. Are you receiving any child support?

only obvious thing i can think of is child tax credits

 

i am probably being a bit dumb, but i am a bit confused as to why additional support or lack of would mean you would have to refuse the surgery, can you explain why?

I wonder if the OP is referring to practical support?

Sorry i should have clarified that. I'm referring to the fact that I physically won't be in a position to look after my children.

sorry the only child care cost assistance I can think of woud be for workers or students

 

the only other thing i can think of would be asking relatives or childrens services to help out

You should also be receiving child maintenance / support from the childs' other parent.

Adult Social Services at the county council would be the first port of call assuming there are no friends or family to help. If nothing else, the council may be able to signpost you [the OP] to local charities or church groups that could provide help.

Children's Social Services would probably be a better bet.
