    The results (n=67) indicate that the subjects'living arrangements had not altered significantly, and nearly half had returned to some form of paid work, though over 50% were reliant on the welfare system.

    The majority (57%) felt they had improved in all areas, 19% partially improved and 8% felt they had actually deteriorated.
