When we first saw AC, she had been sofa surfing for some time. She has now secured employment, albeit on a low income, but has struggled to keep jobs in the past, mainly due to having to take time off to care for children. Her situation now appears more stable, but paying back the £16k that she owes to creditors seems an insurmountable hurdle. AC has been proactive in trying to sort out her problems, and she is a deserving candidate for a fresh start.
