Hi Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How old are you and what special clothes do you need
waterproofs,thick warm clothing for all outdoor activities,boots that get soiled,wellington boots,gloves, everyday my clothes need laundering in a separate washing machine because the envirement
Is that for the voluntary work?
how old are you
yes but i also use it for the college coarse i'm on because the coarse from college has placements at the farm i do the voluntary work at.
16 but 17 in june
How many hours a week are you in college?
college mondays 9 untill 3 placement at the farm wednesday 7.30 untill 4pm
So more than 12 hours a week/
Then you parents should still be receiving Child Benefit for you and are eligible for Child Tax Credits of their income i slow
They can check their entitlements here
they do get child benefit but it does not cover the costs of clothing and expenses to and from the farm and college.
I am afraid that there is nothing extra for that
so can my father claim in his taxes for supo
No I am afraid not
however of they are eligible for Child Tax credits they can claim those
but theyve been told they cannot claim child tax credits because my fathers wage goes up and down so there is no other grant or anything i can do?
Unless the college offers a grant then no I am afraid not - although the Child Credit is determined on last years income and P60 so it could be worth applying
ok i will tell my dad and relay the information to him thak
You are welcome - good luck
