EMA cut is depriving my children of an education

I live in the country, in a village with no bus service at all. I am recovering from a huge amount of surgery after having breast cancer. I have complications from that surgery that have meant I have not been able to go back to work and am currently on benefits. The transport costs to college and resource costs, plus the rise in the cost of living means that it is almost impossible to survive.

Both my children worked really hard, got 10 good GCSEs each and were planning to go to University. I am not in a position to help them now and they dare not take on such a debt. This government has done nothing but put obstacles in the way for my family, two bright, hard working children who until the CONDEMS came into power looked as if they would have a bright future, contributing greatly to Britain.
