N is a victim of domestic abuse and lives with her 2 teenage daughters. Her ex-partner smashed up doors in their house in a violent rage. She is making a fresh start with her girls but they have been living with the smashed doors reminding them of the past.

His marriage had broken down and he had no family that he could stay with. He has now moved in to a council tenancy but does not have the items he needs for his home.
