I was looking at the options of going back to work part time. and wondered if any one had any advice. When i left work they said they could give me vouchers to help with child costs but at the time i never really looked in to it and now i wish i had! My job isnt high paid - i was only earning approx Â£900 a month. If i went back to work it would be for only 2 days a week probably about 16 hours a week. Now does my tax credits go down if i go back to work, and do they help with the payment for childcare? as if i get no help then it will be pointless going back to work, as i would be working to pay childcare! i enjoy my work and the people i used to work with. So am just looking at my options. Plus we desperately need some money at the moment!
