Hi I am currently living in temporary accommodation which costs about £225 per week and I am not too sure how much I will have to contribute towards this when I start earning £18,000 a year.

Then on top of that nursery fees are £150 per week I am not sure how much working take credits I am entitled too and how much of the fees I will have to pay upfront.

Can anyone help out with the figure entitlements who has been in the same position and how much they roughly have at the end of the month after these payments. I would be grateful.

My son is a year on Wednesday and my interview the next day. It is likely that the position will be offered to myself but am considering is it going to be worth it.

I am working part time at the moment but do not earn enough to know what the cost is financially.

If you go to the website entitled to it should be able to give you an idea of what you will get.
