Growing Up Poor: Britain’s Breadline Kids
Three articulate and engaging kids tell their own stories and wryly observe the impact poverty and homelessness is having on their families, including their parents’ mental health.
Mother and daughter duo Maxine and Jasmine are used to cleaning some horror homes but they approach every job with a big heart and gallows humour.
Sisters Yvonne and Angela have been in business together for 20 years and see themselves as social workers with mops. Ex-army man Steve takes a military approach to each of his stomach-churning jobs.
Nothing phases these hardened cleaners. In this series they face a house so filled to the brim its owner sleeps in the shed, what could be Britain’s dirtiest kitchen and a drugs den littered with thousands of infected needles.
Call the Cleaners features some incredible transformations as well as uplifting stories of helping those most in need.
