The possibility of the closure of the Scunthorpe Steel Works is becoming a reality. As a Scunthorpe resident, I'm worried about the future. What will happen to my town?

Imagine if - on top of all that - your family is the major problem in your life: you are suffering abuse or neglect- you don't know who you can trust and there is no one to talk to. All your experience tells you that this is what the world is like and - for all you know - will always be like because there is no one to tell you otherwise.
