Have you been affected by the UK's economic problems?

Newsround is making a special TV programme about the effects the UK's money problems have had on children and we're looking for kids to take part.

Since the crisis began, shops and businesses have closed, people have lost their jobs, and funding for public services - from libraries to police forces - has been cut.

We're looking to interview children whose families have been affected by the country's economic problems.
