A year after their 11-year old son died on the way to school, Dawn and Adam have been told that, under bedroom tax, his bedroom is spare and they must find an extra £13 per week from the household budget, or move house. Dawn says, “To receive this letter was just shocking, absolutely shocking. It’s not just our family home. When it was built, it was my nan’s house, my parents started off when they were married in that house.” At the moment, bedroom tax legislates that their other children, a girl and a boy, should share a room. In a few years’ time, they will need to be separated again. Dawn says, “We’ve been through so much – the children too – and to uproot, and then to have to move again in five years’ time, the children have been through enough. We all have.”
