The Other Half
Linda, originally from Trinidad, is the single mother of a seven-year old daughter and the main carer of her elderly mother. She has been waiting several years for the Home Office to decide if she can remain permanently in the UK. Until November 2014 she was living in a small flat that she rented from an uncle. But, out of the blue, she received a notice of eviction. Her confused residency situation meant that she was not eligible for housing assistance.
