    Hi everyone I'm new here so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread but could really do with some advice.I am living at home with my parents and my 1 year old child.I am on JSA at the moment and have been searching non stop for a job to no avail.My 'Partner' and I use that term very loosely and explain why He lives with his parents and works full time.I get no financial support from this man whatsoever not a single penny and am left providing for OUR child all on my own..this has obviously put massive strain on our relationship.What I'm wondering is do I qualify for OPFP??Why I'm asking is because I have recently been invited to a meeting with jobpath and have been doing research into it.I live in a very rural part of the country and there is no public transport near me.If it was a job I would obviously be able to afford to pay €30 or more to pay for taxi as this is how much it would cost and that's not including childchild.I know if I can't participate I will be cut off and literally have no money to provide for my child but I really don't know how I'm going to afford going in and out of this place 2 or 3 times a week please can anybody offer some advice?
