  • A living wage for all adults not just the over 25s
    All working adults deserve equal pay for doing the same work. An 18 year old is and adult and has the same out goings and expenses to live as a 25 year old but is currently discriminated against purely on their age. It's not right or fair and every wor king adult deserves to be paid a wage that they can afford to live on.

  • Make housing developers be transparent in Manchester
    Current planning law states that if a developer will make less than 20% profit on a new development, they can ignore a council's regulations about building affordable and social housing. Leaked documents from several developers have shown that the maths they use to work out their profit margins are purposefully misleading, allowing them to claim they will make less than 20% profit on a development by undervaluing the prices of the houses they will sell and over-costing the labour. To combat this Islington, Greenwich, Lambeth and Bristol councils have introduced a policy that forces developers "viability assessments" to be made public. By bringing these dodgy maths into the public domain, Councils, campaigning groups and individuals will be able to hold developers to account and force them to use more honest maths.

  • We do not consent to Smart Water Meters
    Haringey residents have six concerns about the Smart Meter installation programme: 1. Not being consulted prior to installation; 2. Not compulsory (?); 3. Penalise poor people who live in crowded homes; 4. Risk to the health of humans, animals, pollinators, trees and plants; "10. The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorised RF EMFs as a Possible CARCINOGEN (Group 2B), the same as lead, DDT, chloroform & methylmercury (31 May 2011)". "11. Dr Andrew Goldsworthy’s research warned that electromagnetically-conditioned water flow could strip lead from pipes (after firstly removing limescale) leading to lead poisoning. (1998, 2007, 2012 and 2016)". 5. Surveillance of water, gas and electric usage; and 6. Security risk through (nuclear) electromagnetic pulse attacks, space weather and hacking (“cybercrime”). Our focus is on Smart Water Meters but not exclusively. Full details about the Stop Smart Meters Haringey campaign can be found on our website below. This petition will be initially delivered to Haringey Council. The target is 2,200+

  • Social groups for autistic adults in Scotland
    Adults with autism and ASD find it very difficult to maintain friendships in mainstream society. We rely on public funding to make this possible but right now because our funding pot is dry we are relying on a membership model to maintain the running of our social groups. We shouldn't have to resort to this drastic measure but we have no choice. I personally have ASD, which means me and my fellow service users can find making sense of the world around us difficult at times. We're all on different levels of the spectrum so our difficulties vary from person to person. Autism is neurological and lifelong. It affects girls as well as boys, but goes undiagnosed in girls most of the time because they hide it better. It is a developmental disability that starts in early childhood and continues throughout adult life. My Social Programmes Manager is Sandra Buckley and she cares about her service users and their right to socialise within a secure group setting. We need on average £50,000 or more to keep our social groups running in their current format and possibly fund short breaks as well as other events. If we can get as many as 40,000 signatures to persuade Nicola Sturgeon to put my request into action I believe my petition will pay off. Even if we get less than 40,000 I would still be very grateful for this amazing effort. Just help me get as many signatures as possible. Our Glasgow office is at Central Chambers, 1st floor, 109 Hope Street. Thank you very much.
