Fostering A New Approach Episode 4: Housing and Accommodation

Main talking points:

  • The relationships built between young mothers in a Baby and Mother unit.
  • Lack of support from the state and the need for charities to support with food, mental wellbeing and isolation.
  • Lockdown rules in a hostel and how they make life harder for mothers and babies
  • The feelings of freedom when you walk into your new home.
  • The bare-bones of council accommodation. No carpet, no curtains, no white goods.
  • Setting up your own business as a young mother.
