  • Save Our BBC
    The government have declared war on our BBC. It's a thinly veiled attempt to clamp down on being held to account. They've pledged to scrap the licence fee and cut dozens of TV & radio stations, they want to "prune" its reach into people's homes. Our BBC is a world leading public service. The way that it is funded means that it's independent of government and corporate pressure. At a time when fake news can spread like wildfire and when so much is at stake, this is a dangerous attack on democracy. We need to protect the BBC from this political attack. The Prime Minister has already tried to ban journalists he doesn't like from No.10 briefings, now he and his close advisers are going after our public broadcasters. This is a move straight out of Donald Trump's playbook. Already MPs from all parties are up in arms about this attack, but to stop it, it's going to take a huge amount of public pressure. Please sign and share this petition.

  • Zebra Crossings for Paxman Academy
    The students at Paxman Academy and the local community of Shrub End would benefit from safe crossing points on both Paxman Avenue and Walnut Tree Way. These roads are very busy and see lots of traffic passing speedily through and directly passing the School entrance/exit. Pupils & the local community are at great risk of being knocked down by oncoming traffic, as at present there are no safe crossing points. I have witnessed myself students having near misses on the corner where Walnut Tree Way & Paxman Avenue. We simply cannot leave this and let a fatality / major incident occur because of inaction! Safe crossing points need to be installed ASAP to ensure everyone’s safety. This action is required ASAP to prevent a Major Road Traffic Accident occurring, involving one of our children, family or other community member.

  • Help us get to OUR Hospital
    Since the new Finchley Memorial Hospital was built, people have been campaigning for better access to the site. Unless you drive a car or can afford a taxi, patients are faced with a very long walk and a dangerous road to cross. For the sick and disabled a journey to the hospital is dangerous and exhausting. Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals have bus services that take them to the front door of the hospital. Why not Finchley? The next person that needs a hospital visit could be you!

  • Let’s stop North Lanarkshire Council from introducing charges at public car parks
    With many town centres suffering a lower footfall than ever, the proposal to start charging people for parking within North Lanarkshire public car parks will undoubtedly be the death knell for local towns. Out of town shopping complexes with free parking are enticing shoppers to move away from their local areas, leading to businesses closing and high streets becoming a shadow of their former selves with boarded up and vacant premises on each and every thoroughfare.

  • Adref Volunteers say ‘Save Adref’
    Adref have been providing local hostel services and housing support services for 30 years. Adref have now lost the contract to manage hostel services in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil. This will mean:- • Adref itself being forced to close • Hostel staff moving over to a new employer with poorer terms and conditions • Up to 10 staff made redundant • 50 fantastic Volunteers losing their positions The two Councils involved need to rethink their decision. Adref does so much more than simple managing hostels and supporting people in their own homes. They provide • Help for rough sleepers - clothing, advice and snacks • Service users are supported after they leave the hostels - supplied with new kitchen electricals and basic furniture so encourage them to stay in an otherwise empty flat/house • An annual Christmas hamper appeal supported by 100s of local people, dozens of companies, hospital staff, and local council staff, providing a much-needed boost for people in our community (over 300 households Christmas 2019) • Practical training for Service users via shop volunteering Finally, we fear for the homeless themselves because of the lack of any plan to transfer services to the new company and the loss of the extras that Adref provide.

  • We want Aldi to open a store on the Isle of Skye
    The island and it’s population is growing with many developments happening, not to mention the thousands of tourists that visit throughout the year !! Another supermarket is badly needed for more options and choices for us all . It would also benefit the island by supplying jobs for many people that live here.

  • Save Chineham Library
    Hampshire County Council have announced plans to close 10 libraries as part of cost cutting plans. In addition to signing this petition, it's really important that everyone responds directly to the consultation at tiny.cc/hccsurvey. Our libraries do more than simply loan books. They provide events for children, internet access for the elderly, book clubs and more. They’re places for the whole community to come together and learn. Libraries are a door into the world, we need to protect them for future generations.

  • Park Home Reduction In Council Tax
    Other than for refuse collections, many park home owners pay through their ground rents for their own street lighting, roadworks, street cleaning, drainage and other services. Many Councils also receive license fees and business rates from site owners. In addition, home owners on residential sites pay Council Tax so it is a double whammy. Isn't it about time a reduced tax was introduced for mobile homes? I will do my best to get this to The House Of Lords for debate ?

  • Save Haringey's Parks and Green Spaces!
    All Haringey residents - of all ages and interests - benefit from access to public green spaces for their local community and neighbourhood. But they must be well-run and in good condition in order to provide the many benefits all residents deserve. The parks staff do their best but don't have the numbers or resources to manage properly. We need 2,200 people who live, work or study in Haringey to sign up with a local postcode (your home, workplace or school) by the end of February in order to trigger a debate at the council meeting in March. Please ask all the local people you know! This is a petition from the Haringey Friends of Parks Forum, the umbrella network for the 45 local Friends of Parks groups championing their local green spaces Petition: https://bit.ly/2QQdMpk Tw: @FoHaringeyParks #saveharingeyparks www.haringeyfriendsofparks.org.uk

  • The Child Protection System in the UK is failing our families.
    The system is failing, broken and corrupt. Families are being traumatised and left with irreparable emotional damage as a result of false allegations that result in the removal of children from happy, safe and secure homes.

  • Take leadership to solve the social care crisis and give social care the funding it needs
    The Conservative Party manifesto was shockingly empty of ideas to make sure people will be supported and cared for in old age. It's because they don't want to take on such a complicated task of fixing social care - but they must. At the moment elderly people, kids, and other adults who need support aren't getting the help they need to get dressed, wash or eat their lunch. The new government cannot shirk their responsibility. They must take concrete action now to overhaul how social care works, so we can all live out our days with dignity.
