Covid lockdown: How a Cardiff family coped in a one-bed flat


Living throughout lockdown in a one-bedroom flat with a family of seven has been “murder”, a mother has said.

Sarah Wheddon has been living with her partner Chris Hill and five children in Grangetown, Cardiff, in a flat where everyone is “on top of each other”.

“We’re counted as severely overcrowded or homeless,” the 29-year-old said.

They have had some support from Shelter Cymru, which says Covid-19 has exposed “huge inequalities”.

The Welsh Government said social housing was a top priority and it had invested £2bn in affordable homes.
