Meet the Robart family:
As the plight of the Uk Mortgage Prisoners becomes more widely known, we aim to provide a platform for those who wish to share their truth. The stories are often painful. They reflect the lives of those unfairly treated by people intent only on making a profit. The human cost of this scandal is only just coming to light. Mental health, suicide, and broken families are not uncommon. How was it allowed to get to this? Why did no one stand up for those who became trapped by their finance deals? What led senior government officials to put profit over peoples well being? We hope to have answers to all of these questions. We are fighting to stop these things from happening again. In the meantime, we salute the bravery of those willing to share their story openly. Please show your support and share these on your social media. We welcome positive engagement from everyone.
