Karen and her 24 year old daughter have to share a one bedroom flat

I am a full-time carer for my 24 yesr old daughter, who suffers from severe and frequent epilepsy following a brain operation to remove a tumour.

We have to share a one bedroomed flat  and this is now effecting my mental health.

I am desperate to be rehoused but can’t seem to find anyone who can help.

I’ve been told that the only thing I can do is find a private rental, but as me and my daughter are on benefits, we have no way of saving up the £1,000+ needed for a deposit and rent.

I am a volunteer with Voices of Stoke.
