Single mother: 'I'll potentially not be able to pay a bill every month'

Caroline Rice (46) from Fermanagh is a self-employed childcare provider.

As a single mother she receives Universal Credit but says she feels "squashed" by a system that barely makes working affordable.

She has called on Rishi Sunak to make a £20 uplift to Universal Credit permanent and said that without it she will be unable to pay all her household bills by September.
