Multiple long-term conditions
Addressing the twin challenges of poor health and financial difficulty
Shannon is a 55-year-old single mother with four teenagers. Her precarious working conditions negatively impacted her health, especially when she couldn’t take paid time off work when she needed it.
Andrea is a 44-year-old and originally from Latin America. Her housing conditions were extremely bad, and they made her feel sick. Though the damp in her house made her asthma worse, better housing was unaffordable to her.
Daliya is a 27-year-old mother with multiple long-term health conditions living in South London. Her income fluctuated from month to month and her financial struggles had a huge impact on her mental health.
Luisa is a 28-year-old mother of two young children, aged one and four. She lives with depression and anxiety. When Luisa's finances caused her depression to worsen, this manifested itself through physical symptoms.
