Stephen lives in a two-bedroom bungalow with his wife Marie. He has diabetes, which has left him blind, with kidney failure and a range of other problems. They use the extra room to store Stephen’s medical equipment. He says, “I have to go on dialysis for three or four hours every day. The ‘extra bedroom’ has been turned into a medical room with special flooring and everything.” Now, with bedroom tax, their income has been cut by £13 per week. Stephen says, “Thirteen pounds doesn’t sound a lot, but when you’re on a fixed income, with no other choice, it is.”
