Amari is a single parent with four children, on benefits. She says, “I’m really struggling, even with uniforms, shoes, and day-to-day items like food. Those costs are going up. It just feels like things are getting tighter.” She worries that she won’t be able to bring up her children properly. “I want to do things with my kids, but the cost of everything is so high. I don’t know what the situation will be like when they are old.”
