Vicky works part-time in a shop and lives with her three teenage children in a three-bedroom house. Her two sons share a room. Her daughter lives with the family for three days a week, and then at her grandmother’s for the other days. Under bedroom tax rules, her daughter’s room is considered spare and so Vicky is losing £12 per week from the family’s income. She says, “I am juggling my bills as it is and this will make it even more of a struggle. I have to cope because I have three children. If I had still been on benefits, there is no way I could afford the extra. I would have to move to a two-bed property, but there are no spare properties in this area to move to.”
