Antonia lives in a small flat with her four-year old daughter. It has views onto brick walls, the wiring has gone and the furniture is second-hand and broken. The rent is £500 per week. She says, “I didn’t choose to live here. I was put here. I’ve been in temporary accommodation for six years.” After she became homeless through drug addiction, she attended treatment and has been clean for six years, and is now studying for a diploma in nutrition, with plans to go back to work. Now the benefit cap means she must move and will very likely be re-housed in another city, losing both her course and the groups that have supported her throughout her recovery.
