“How is it possible to self-isolate in a shared house with seven adults, a controlling husband and 6 children where you share a toilet and bathroom, do as you are told and cannot move freely? And because we have to stay at home, I cannot access my well-being hub at the Cobden Cente. We get benefits, but my husband spends most of it on takeaways and cigarette. I can’t get personal hygiene product, needed for myself and my 2 teenage daughters. The money we have is hardly enough to eat for the whole week. And there is no way we can take help from any other person. I haven’t had credit on my phone for four to five days. No calls are possible if you run out of credit. You have to wait for people to call you. ”
