Hannah lives with her two young children. Before her partner left, she worked in a shop and as a care assistant. She says, “I’ve always said that this house could be for a bigger family. I’ve been asking on and off for the last six years for a two-bedroom place. We had a letter saying I’m under-occupying my home by one bedroom and we’d have to start paying extra for the rent. Now I’m more than £200 in arrears and it’s only been a few weeks. They won’t let me apply for a new two-bedroom place because I’m in arrears. But I can’t clear my arrears because of the bedroom tax.”
