Paula's story

"I loved every minute of care work but eventually this had to end because of a work accident. At the time I was living in a mobile home site but the owners went bankrupt and I ended up living in my car. I had councillors and everyone trying to speak up for me, but there was nothing that could be done. I could at least lock myself in there and stay safe."

"I felt vulnerable living in the car – I had put makeshift curtains up to give myself privacy but I didn’t know who was outside. It was very undignified – trying to find toilet facilities and going to friends to use their shower and having to use bare essentials."
