    Did you claim child benefit?  This is a route to NI credits.

    One small thing you might be able to do easily enough to at least create some small amount of income would be online surveys - it's never going to make you rich, but if you have the patience, you might be able to bring in enough to make a bit of an impact on the grocery bill, at least. Just remember not to rely on any earnings of this type as until the money hits your bank account they are never really guaranteed - having said that, most of the survey sites that have been about for a while seem pretty reliable.
