• Armed Forces Pension Scheme
    It is extremely important to me, as it once again proves that HM Government has treated veterans with contempt and a total disregard by basically stealing from both of their pension pots.

  • STOP THE PROPOSED CUTS TO GREATER MANCHESTER FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE
    We believe that the proposed cuts will result in a reduced level of Fire and Rescue Service response which risks both public and firefighter safety. A hundred support staff jobs will be axed, 194 firefighter jobs lost and six fire stations closed across Greater Manchester under the plans. The number of fire engines would be reduced by nine, from 56 to 47 and the number of firefighters riding on all appliances across the region would reduce from five to four. Recent local and national incidents have shown the need for a fully resourced and immediately available Fire and Rescue Service in Greater Manchester, public and firefighter safety must come first!

  • Traffic Safety Mirror bottom of Lead Lane
    So motorists that are leaving the junction at the bottom of Cockpit Hill are able to have visability of approaching traffic from the left ( Lead Lane). As at the moment this is totally blind.

  • Regulate funeral firms and the role of local authorities in funerals
    At a vulnerable time families, especially the poorest, are pushed into 'death poverty'. It is not necessary as body disposal is not their responsibility. Funeral firms should be regulated and should provide a nationally standard statement to potential customers, making them aware they are not responsible for funerals. Local authorities should oversee this and provide statutory information about responsibilities for funerals. 'Many families left behind end up in debt as a result of funerals' according to the Independent. The average price for a cremation now stands at £3,596 and £4,561 for a burial. Prices are increasing at four times the rate of inflation. With unregulated operators, and local authorities keeping quiet about this, there is no compulsion for full disclosure to let families know they need not incur 'funeral poverty'.

  • Save our P99 school bus.
    This service enables parents to get their children to school safely, when they don't drive, need to go to work, or have mobility issues. It's also very environmentally friendly, it reduces pollution and traffic around schools, therefore easing congestion around Ilkley altogether. The kids love getting the bus, they have friends on the bus and feel a certain amount of independence getting the bus. It also encourages young people to use public transport later on in life.

  • Bin the new bin collections
    This is important because this service is one of the few services left to Enfield residents. The so-called “consultation” conducted by the council revealed a majority of residents preferred to keep the bin collections as a weekly service rather than change it to bi-weekly with additional charges for garden waste.

  • Transparency for Benefit Claimants
    Giving claimants a copy of their assessment interviews is important. It provides them with vital personal information. It increases trust and transparency in the system. In the past Assessment Providers have not recorded interviews for either PIP (Personal Independence Payment) or WCA (Work Capacity Assessment). As a result, claimants have had no record of their assessment interviews. We welcome the Scottish initiative which allows audio recordings of ALL interviews. We therefore call upon the Government to require Assessment Providers to follow the Scottish model by: • recording both PIP and WCA assessment interviews • providing claimants with a copy of the recording with their decision letters This petition is sponsored by Stockport United Against Austerity

    The presenters provide vital ‘feel good’ their delivery of the show is second to none. The local travel and news is integral to the area. It has huge benefits to the people in Sussex and no one else is capable of filling in Jack, Nicola, Tom and Brians footsteps. Their passion, knowledge and humour they provide for our county is need not a want, its a public service!

  • SCRAP UNIVERSAL CREDIT
    The universal credit benifit system is a sham and is causing more and more people into poverty and in some cases loosing their homes. The whole system is flawed because its supposed to encourage people back into work, but the only thing it does is get people into debt and pay Lower amounts compared to any other benefits, so it only holds people over a barrel making them have no choice but to be pushed into work. Also the agreement you make in order to receive this benefit makes it highly likely for you to fail and be sanctioned eventually stopping the benefits all together. It needs to go and a better system and process needs to happen!!!

  • Stop the Closure Of the Post Office in Middleton Manchester
    The Post Office Is a Centralised Hub That Closing Can Only lead to jobs Being Lost and hardship for Business. The public will also suffer and is not able to provide the service as Efficiently. The Elderly and Children will find it difficult as the service will inevitably lead to longer queuing time.

  • Keep the Post Office Open In Middleton, Manchester
    The Town badly needs the post office for business needs and to serve the local people especially the elderly. the proposed alternative would not meet demand and we believe is only a stepping stone to closing once the majority of business and the public find alternatives-it is the centre of town and is always busy

  • Keep 'Stay & Play' at Franciscan Children's Centre
    'Stay & Play' is a free service open to all families and children local to Franciscan Children's Centre. It provides the opportunity for children to access indoor and outdoor space where they can engage in child lead play and develop, learn, play, sing, enjoy messy play and integrate into their community. It also provides a support network for parents where their children can play with their peers, meet other parents, talk to professionals and ask advice. Many parents feel isolated in London and 'Stay & Play' at Franciscan Children's Centre is a unique service which encourages families to come together, talk, ask questions in a relaxed, fun and non intrusive environment. I have accessed stay & play at Franciscan Road for both my children and watched them grow, learn and gain the confidence and independence to explore and understand their community. Many families who currently access this service do not have alternative options for their children to play locally. The parents who go to stay & play are from a diverse background and this is a non means tested service that allows children and families to play and have fun in a relaxing environment without feeling stigmatised. Many of the play groups within the area around Franciscan Road are already full and therefore difficult to access. There are a vast number of families in this area who need this service including single parents, parents with health problems, families who are struggling economically and cannot afford private play groups, families who have recently moved to the UK who do not speak English, parents who are seeking guidance and help in raising their children and parents simply seeking a fun and friendly environment for their children to play. The importance of this service cannot be underestimated, this kind of support is not available at other play groups or sing along sessions. By discontinuing stay & play at Franciscan Children's Centre, Wandsworth Council is withdrawing vital 'Early Years' support to huge number of parents and children who currently rely on this service. We urge the Council to continue providing stay and play as an integral part of the services at Franciscan Children's Centre.
