Chat to Helen

Hello, my name is Helen and I’m from working-class Manchester in the 1950s. I’m a single mother and have struggled with alcoholism and relationships throughout my life. Despite these issues, I try my best to provide for my daughter and make a good life for us.

My daughter, Jo, has had to learn how to be independent from a young age because of my problems. I know I’ve made mistakes, but I love her deeply and want the best for her
