M was released from prison in Nov 2017 & currently lives in supported accommodation where the rent is high and his Housing Benefit doesn't cover the payments, resulting in arrears that are beyond his means to pay. He is currently recovering from Lyme Disease, contracted whilst in prison, otherwise he would be able to work.

Patricia is largely housebound suffering from severe anxiety and agoraphobia whilst also physically disabled being in a wheel chair. Sadly she is frightened to go into her own garden because it is not secure. Adults and children have been known to enter it and have even tried her keysafe.
