This is Parween after her mortgage is paid, she has £600 to last her and her two children for the month.
“It affects me considerably,” she says, “because I don’t work in the city that I live in, so I travel to work. And I’m a single mum so I’m finding it really really difficult.”
“It makes me feel really angry,” she adds. “I’ve given so much dedication to the children and I love the job that I do.
“I have had to cut out a lot of things; I try not to go out because I can’t afford it and my children aren’t happy about it. Other people go on holiday and I can’t because I’m struggling just to pay the bills.”
