Maggie showing her almost empty purse, in her council flat in Moseley, Birmingham. She is required to pay bedroom tax for one room, which she cant pay, the discretionary payment will not help in the long term. She and her son downsized and moved into this flat three years ago. Her son has now moved out. Maggie is 61 and unemployed, she is unlikely to find a job at her age. She is supposed to make up 13 for the extra room per week. She can not afford to move and there are no single bedroom flats available.
