Carol says “I’m in a two-bed flat. I’ve applied for a one-bedroom flat but there just aren’t any, so I have to pay bedroom tax. I’m on discretionary housing at the moment, which gives me an exemption, but I have to re-apply every three months. I’ve only got three months until I’ve used up my entire 12 months. Then I’ll have to start paying £12 per week, but I won’t be able to pay it. I’ve never been on antidepressants before, but I am now because of the stress from being sanctioned and having no money. I need them now to cope.”
