I am a full-time mum, I work, I am a taxi driver, I am a banker, I am everything at the moment that’s how I feel, plus I am a first aider, plus I am a union rep, so at the end of the day when I go home I am absolutely whacked. But my job does not stop there. I have to carry on and cook and clean and spend time with the kids and that, but sometimes it would be nice if I had somebody to offload on… . I do not get on very well with my area organiser at the moment so it doesn’t help that I haven’t got that support there. (Anita, Indian, 30s, widow, children)
