Universal Credit for Single Parent


New member
My 22 year old daughter is a single parent of a ten month old boy who she plans to educate at home. I am a school teacher so I will be assisting with his home education.

She lives on her own and is currently receiving Universal Credit but I have heard she is expected to look for work when her son is 3 years old.

Due to mental health problems my daughter stopped going to school when she was 14 years old then went to college when she was 18 for a year so she has no real qualifications.

How can she continue to receive Universal Credit while home educating her son ?
