If you are a lone parent who has recently found work you could be in for a reward. Lambeth are offering all lone parents in the borough a £50 voucher.

Details are on the Lambeth website:

If you are a lone parent living in Lambeth who has been successful in gaining employment between 1 April 2007 and 31 March 2010 then you could be entitled to a £50 voucher.

If this is the case and you can provide evidence to support your employment then we want to hear from you!

You would need to:

* have started work between 1 April 2007 and 31 March 2010

Evidence required

We need evidence which shows that you:

Evidence of employment can come in the form of payslips, or a letter from your employer as long as it is signed and stamped (or on company stationary) confirming employment of 13 weeks. If you were on a training programme, please contact your provider for advice.
