• Stop the sale of St Anthony's Leonard Cheshire home, Wolverhampton.
    Leonard Cheshire have put 17 care homes for severely disabled people up for sale, including St Anthony's Wolverhampton.. The homes were all started by Leonard Cheshire years’ ago and are run with the values he promoted - “Homes for Life” in safe and secure surroundings within a not-for-profit organisation. It is wrong to sell them. People trust the name Leonard Cheshire and support the residential homes which were set up in his name. Many of the homes occupy land donated to the charity. They are not in financial trouble. They have always said they are leaders in this type of care - severely disabled adults. Why are Leonard Cheshire now selling the very reason they came into being in the first place? They say the homes are in the wrong places - this is not true. All of these homes are in beautiful surroundings near cities and those residents that live in them love their home and don't want any change to take place. We all fear that a new service provider will make changes that will affect the health and well being of these vulnerable people. Please sign to prevent any such distress!

  • Reinstate the Number 5 bus to its original route
    This bus is used by many people in the local community to keep their independence. Elderly, disabled people and school children use this bus on a regular basis and for some it is a way of keeping their independence. The nearest bus stop is not accessible. The Number 6 bus is also struggling as it is a single decker and the buses are very crowded and struggling to cope with demand.

  • Stop the planned build on Nethercote Gardens
    Nethercote Gardens is a cul-de-sac with several specific strengths and challenges. The River Cole on which we sit is a haven for local wildlife and must be protected - our low position also puts us at risk of flooding and our road was disproportionately affected by such flooding earlier this year. Many residents feel that recent housing developments which have been completed in recent years have increased the risk of localised flooding; by increasing concrete and build areas we are rapidly losing valuable soft ground which absorbs water. This creates water run off during times of extreme weather and means homes like ours are more likely to flood. Adding another property to the road will be to the detriment of our local wildlife population which local residents are already fighting to support. The plot on which the development is planned sits immediately opposite 177a Nethercote Gardens which is a shared supported living home for people with assessed care. The residents of this property are extremely vulnerable adults and not able to object to this build, which would impact their daily lives, on their own behalf. Our residents have faced and are facing enough challenges due to our unique position and feel that we have been let down at numerous points by the local authority over the years, by allowing local building work, by not having adequate flood supports in place both during and after such events. Our small community are opposed to this build and will keep campaigning to ensure that it does not go ahead. Please, please sign our petition and add to our collective voice - we need to make some noise about this; small builds that negatively impact residents can sneak under the radar but they all add up to people having lower quality of life and our countryside being affected. Enough is enough. Please, please sign our petition. Thank you. "What we allow will continue."

  • Mobility Aids Center Totton, Hampshire must remain insitu.
    The sudden announcement that Totton, Hampshire Mobility Aids Center should close on the 12th October 2018 demonstrates a complete disregard for every local resident. The idea of a Mobility Aids Center is to assist those people most in need. I know personally how difficult it is to obtain such resources. Already there are severe limitations to Patient Transport, Community Transport. Being forced to travel to "selected destinations" will instantly be out of reach for local residents affected by the "change. Due to mobility restrictions of residents Fording-bridge and Lymington is impossible and definitely impracticable for the overwhelming majority. Visiting the Mobillity Aid Location in Totton has been my last resort and have been using the service for the past 15 months. Hampshire County Council have a duty of care for her residents. To allow closure is not the answer or a reasonable adjustment. What is certain Geoff Chesire "refuses to acknowledge people in crisis" This can not be ignored. Thank you everyone for your support.

  • Let's have lifts at Stroud station
    £300m of funding has been ear-marked by the Department for Transport to improve access at railway stations. Stroud station should have funding to be inclusive and allow everyone the choice to use rail transport and enjoy a smooth and comfortable journey. At the moment, the alternative route for wheelchair users or those who cannot manage the steps is a difficult route without dropped kerbs, over rough surfaces and with gradients that would be impossible for those not in a motorised wheelchair.

  • Help Abigail Bolt receive the medical support she needs from the NHS.
    This petition is important as this is the primary reason the NHS exists today. Let this not be another story where a family has to go private with their healthcare due to the NHS failures and government turning their backs on its people. Ultimately Abigail Bolt's life can be significantly improved given a decision to allow the necessary medication be made available.

  • Let Charlie Barker’s assistance dog George go to the Fusion festival
    Fusion won’t allow Charlie Barkers assistance dog George go to the music Festival! PLEASE HELP BY SIGNING & SHARING. From Charlie: ____________________ "I'm 23 and for one day I would just like to be that care free 20 year old who enjoys live music. But it's being taken away from me because Fusion won't let me take my Assistance Dog, George! I have a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. EDS affects the body’s connective tissue. Connective tissue lies between other tissues and organs, keeping these separate whilst connecting them, holding everything in place and providing support, like the mortar between bricks. EDS causes my joints to dislocate, mostly my shoulders and hips. My gorgeous George helps me to relocate them. Without George, I will end up in A&E, meaning I could miss most of the concert but more importantly Fusion will have put me through unnecessary pain. George does Deep Pressure Massage for pain relief #myrock" ____________________ Please help show Fusion Charlie needs his assistance dog George and they are discriminating against him! https://www.equalityhumanrights.com/sites/default/files/assistance-dogs-a-guide-for-all-businesses.pdf
