Employed by a failing outsource provider as a Care Assistant in the community, Kim receives little more than the minimum wage for a package which consists of unpaid overtime, management bullying and horrendous shifts. Her daily slog is matched only by that of her husband, Dave, a self-employed private hire driver battling long days and grumpy customers, with only the rattlings of fellow driver Terry to fill the endless hours of waiting.
Add to the above an ailing mum, three kids, a dog called Carpet, an unfinished extension and a sister Jackie with a plan to sort out all their woes at a stroke. Going Forward is a universal tale and holds a mirror to modern Britain and the sacrifices made as lives are put on hold for the sake of others. The unique series treads its own fine line between tragedy and triumph to add its own bittersweet voice to this well-trodden ground.

Going Forward - Forward caste - Netflix
Forward caste (also known as Forward Class, Forward Community, and General Class) is a term used in India to denote groups of people who do not qualify for any of the affirmative action schemes operated by the government of India. These schemes are known as Reservation Benefits. Forward castes form about 25–35 per cent of the population, the number varying by region. Those groups who qualify are listed as Other Backward castes or Scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, and they can take advantage of defined quotas amongst other benefits for education, special government schemes, government employment and political representation. The lists of Forward, Other Backward and Scheduled Castes, and Scheduled Tribes are compiled irrespective of religion. If a Scheduled Caste person converts to another religion, except Hinduism, Sikhism or Buddhism, religion reservation benefits will not be available to him/her as per the Constitution of India. The lists are subject to change from time to time, dependent upon social, educational and economic factors. However, although lists are produced for those groups entitled to take advantage of the quotas, there is no such list for the Forward caste group; if a person does not belong to any of the listed groups then that person is by default a member of a group classed as Forward caste.
Going Forward - Economic and educational status - Netflix
As of 2007, forward castes had to compete only in the open category, as they are considered socially, educationally, and economically advanced. At that time the reservation proportion stood at 50% in central-government educational institutions and central-government jobs. However, in certain states, such as Tamil Nadu, the reservation percentage was around 69%.
