• A park for young children to play in on the new Barratt estate Camp Hill
    The benefits of good out door space are not only for children’s physical health as we are living in a generation where more and more young people are stuck in front of computer screens but it also supports with children’s mental health which in recent months has been highlighted in the media. Also some children on the estate suffer with Autism, Learning Difficulties and Down syndrome and would benefit from a much improved outdoor space. The community keeps on growing many childrens families do not have the financial means to keep leaving the estate to find things to do with their children as most activities come at a cost. Commissioning a park as other housing estates have is the right thing to do. The estate of Skye Drive has a park and so does Bannerbrook Housing Estate in Coventry. Saxon Rise, Saxon Heights and Saxon Meadows does not have this facility.

  • Make Cheshunt Skate Park Safe
    It is impotant to have an area for smaller children as it would help keep them and others safe. I have witnessed many serious injuries as a result of smaller children sharing the same space with older users. When the older more experienced skater/bikers are using the ramps the younger children are putting themselves and others at risk. The skate ramp area is not fenced off and younger children can and do run in the space which results in accidents. Due to the park layout it is hard to keep track of kids in the various areas and this should be redesigned to make it a family friendly space accessible to all.

  • Make Dominion Road in Worthing safer for pedestrians and cyclists
    This stretch of road incorporates 2 primary schools and a high school, not to mention the other schools in the local area which are connected by dominion road. Our aim is to show the council that basic road measures could make a big difference. For example a crossing on dominion rd/ way junction and one at the Southdown/Angola road junction. A cycle lane would improve children's safety when riding to school and decrease traffic as well as improving air quality.

  • Stop Chelmsford Bereavement Charge Increase
    The Chelmsford City Council are proposing to increase bereavement charges by around 12%. We are in the midst of a global pandemic which has seen many families lose loved ones and many lose their livelihoods, whether it's jobs or businesses. The financial hardship many people are facing right now is severe. This petition calls for local councillors to get behind the residents they represent and speak against the proposal to increase this charge. This cost will be passed on from funeral directors to grieving families. When a family member dies, we have no choice but to pay this charge. This petition must close on 11th February 2020.

  • Ban the sale of cot bumpers in the UK
    As per NHS and midwifery guidelines bumpers in cots can cause choking, suffocation and strangulation. The only things in a cot should be a correctly sized mattress and a fitted sheet. Some people are not aware this and sadly there are still related incidents and fatalities in the UK. The Lullaby Trust state “New parents now have a massive range of baby products to choose from and it can be really confusing to know what is needed. Babies need just a few basic items for sleep: a firm flat surface and some bedding. Our advice is simple: the safest cot is a clear cot.”

  • Financial help for parents forced to take unpaid leave due to self isolation and school closures
    This is something that is going to affect many families during this lockdown period, granted the schools are open for key worker children but for many this isn’t the case. Not everyone can work from home and as companies are not obliged to pay anyone who needs to take leave to care for their child I believe the government have neglected to consider the financial impact this will have on those that are forced to take unpaid leave to care for their children at home. Who can actually afford unpaid leave? There are no benefits available for people who are employed but earning nothing due to this situation. The same goes for those having to self isolate as their child has come into contact with someone who’s tested positive, there is no financial assistance for this anywhere. The £500 from the local authority does not cover children.

  • Allow families with babies under 1 to form a support bubble in Scotland
    Mental health services are already hard to access and during the pandemic this has only become worse. We need to protect the mental health of new parents both for the welfare of parents and their babies. Parental leave can be very lonely if isolated and with tier 4 restrictions coming in across the country there are fewer and fewer places available to have any contact with other adults. This is so vital in preventing postpartum anxiety and depression. Having the opportunity to form a support bubble would provide a lifeline to some new parents.

  • Implement emergency social services investigations teams to maintain parental contact
    This will protect children from potentially harmful situations if the break in contact is justified and also protect the childs metal health and well being by maintaining relationships and regular contact with both parents. Where parental responsibility is shared then all decisions in relation to the child should be made jointly by both parents, who should be equal in the eyes of the law as there is still a bias towards mothers
