I go through phases in my menstrual cycle when all I want to do is sleep and other times when I'm all fired up and ready to change the world. I blame the moon. At moments like that I'm apt to join the Green Party, send franked stamps to Support Our Soldiers, or write to someone in prison. This month, I’ve asked my local councillors to stop sending bailiffs to homes with children and teenagers.
You can find out how to help too, here: it's a Children's Society campaign.
Children and teenagers across the country are feeling scared and worried after routinely coming face to face with bailiffs in their own homes, sent by the local council to demand sudden, unrealistic council tax payments. On average, councils will refer one in every five homes in council tax debt to a bailiff.
