Kellie Parsons lives in a one bedroom flat with her three-year-old son, Dylan, in Dukinfield, Greater Manchester.

Kellie and Dylan have to share the bedroom and their cramped flat has no room for Dylan to play safely. Kelly has been trying to move to a bigger flat for three years - since becoming pregnant.
