    If you're wanting another job, and able to work >16 hours a week, even with child-care responsibilities, you might be able to claim JSA, if the reason you left is accepted as 'good cause'.
    If your children are not disabled, then WTC, CTC, and Child benefit, along with perhaps some housing benefit (if renting) or council tax support are possible.

    More information is needed. For example -
    How old are you both, how old are your children, are there any disabilities, are you now looking for work, why did you give up your job?
