I applied to the family fund about six weeks ago, it will be our 3rd grant from them - if we get it, so feeling a bit dozy at not being able to remember how long I've waited before!
Just wondering how long is usual before hearing from them, anyone know?
Not being nosey, but does anyone get this even if their household earns more than £23k?
WE are £15 a month over before TAX!!
I wasn't going to bother but our machine machine is playing up again, we can't open the window in Amelia's room because it has no lock on it, and any "spare" money we have we want to try to buy a summer house for the garden. Amelia loves her little playhouse, but it would be great if I could get in and play too!
So I applied online anyway!! Thought it worth a try.
Dingle, we are the same, dh earns 2k over the threshold a year which as you know means we 'miss out' on alot of freebies etc. i applied to family fund but was refused on the basis of income. Apparently I could have filled in lots of various forms with ingoings/outgoings but tbh i gave up in the end. Its a shame when you really arent getting much/if any more a year iykwim
It is utter madness the way the system works!! I know I diverse but DH works hard to provide for his family, get pittance of a wage rise. Just enough to push us over budget for FFund and then for Tax credits to deduct £30 a month from our payments. I wonder why he bothered really!
I was going to comment about the "hello" syndrome on another thread. It can be rather embarrassing of a morning as we make our way up the path into school. We are usually running late and the world and his dog, are all walking up the path in the opposite direction. Amelia is just insistant on saying hello to each and every one of them individually! I am trying to encourage her to say "good morning" just for a change!
