Pushing The Boundary

These are some photos of Elina and her youngest child aged 3. Elina and her 3 children were 'temporarily' housed in this one room flat 18 months ago by Newham Council (they were living in the London Borough of Newham). The temporary housing is in Welwyn Garden City, approximately 20kms from the London Borough of Newham. More details can be found on Kate Belgrave's site 'This is how you and your kids can expect to live if you lose your home'

HallwayThe front door is broken, there is no security

The hallway is full of children's buggys, there were just as many behind me. There is no space in the flats. The front door entry system is broken and buggys get stolen. At night people come in and drink and make noise on the stairs which is intimidating.

Doll There was just enough space to show me her doll.

This is part of an ongoing series that Kate Belgrave is working on. Expect more...
