Can anyone give me some advice on financial support my son can avail of please.
My son has started college this September but wasn't entitled to the SUSI grant because 2 years ago he received the grant but didn't complete the year because he realised the course wasn't for him. He took a year out and returned to college this year.
He was not awarded the grant because he had recieved a grant for the first year in his previous course. We have had to try get the money together ourselves.
And to add to this, he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease last year brought on by stress due to financial worries. I see this worry set in again and I'm concerned for his health, is there any financial support he may be entitled to? He has a part time job which just covers travel, lunch and loan repayments, which is very tight, is there any other help for him he can avail of?
