44-year old Azhar lives with her four children in a tower block, costing £750 a week in rent. The benefit cap leaves her £350/week short. The 7th-floor flat is far from luxurious: small, with broken furnishings, damp, rotting wood, and a faulty oven. Azhar says, “I can’t move out of the area. My children’s school is nearby.” She has a chronic heart condition and is anxious to stay within walking distance of the school and her GP. She left her home in Iraq after the first war, when it was destroyed during fighting. She has been living in this block for five years and says, “It is very stressful. I can’t sleep. I changed my home a lot of times in my life. I can’t do that again. I will go crazy.”
