I aim to raise money to support myself during a unpaid year of work caring for my elderly mother and my newborn baby . I'm struggling to think how I'm going to cope next year if I have to return to work with no childcare and no home care for my 73-year-old mother . This is causing me a lot of stress & i believe having a 2nd year off work funded with your help will allow me the time and peace of mind to make sure where all okay before I venture back on my working career . I am a single parent of two. my beautiful boy is studying at Bath University and my newborn baby is only five months old . I have put my life on how to care for my mother and like any good parent be there for my kids it's a struggle keeping up with the day costs and cannot see any way I can go back to work until my newborn starts nursery .
