Bilal's First Day Out: Episode 3

The mysteries of Universal Credit

Join former prisoner Bilal as he walks out of gates of HMP Brixton and tries to find somewhere to live. His support worker Sarah is along for the ride as well, and she’s made it her mission to start him off on the straight.

When we left Bilal, it looked like he was going to miss his Universal Credit appointment, which could plunge him straight back into homelessness... Will he make the appointment?
