  • Closure of day centres for the elderly
    Loneliness is considered to be one of the main problems among elderly persons which can have a serious effect on health so why would the government close such active community centres?

  • Keep Diesel Pollution Out Of The Ely Valley
    The proposed road will force over 400 village school children and residents in the valley to breathe polluting, health harming, diesel freight traffic fumes. It would bring deadly traffic pollution and noise from freight vehicles into an environmentally sensitive valley that houses two primary schools. The list of long term effects of air pollution on children and the elderly is growing almost daily. Wales has a Future Generations Act designed to ensure we consider the needs of future generations, but this road, aimed at servicing the loss making Cardiff Airport which is actually owned by the Welsh Assembly Government, means the future health of Ely Valley school children and residents appears to have been abandoned. The Welsh Assembly Government is planning on spending £100+ million of taxpayers money on this road that will service their own business. The children affected by these plans have no voice. We must speak for them.

  • Keep the Guard On the Train
    This is a safety critical job, meaning that more customers will feel safe on the railways. Current disputes are going on for no obvious reason, disrupting millions of commuters every week. Have a look at some of the RMT's stories on Facebook and Twitter and see some of the reasons we need to keep our guards.

  • State Pension age & tax free
    British tax payers are being required to work longer and pay NI & tax but state pension not increased, over 60’s who have worked all their lives have paid their tax dues to the country, majority never claimed a penny in benefits but are punished with state pension age being changed and likely will change again to pre war 70 years of age. It is not feasible for the majority of over 60s to stay in their current jobs I.e emergency and armed services, manual workers etc. When we do receive state pension it is another slap in the face that it is taxed, disgraceful country.

  • Keep Hope Alive
    Both the Hope Centre and NAASH offer an unmatched and undeniably crucial role in providing vital services to the towns homeless and vulnerable community. No other organisation be it housing, charity or council come near to the services provided or the compassion and heart they are provided with. To allow a business who's bottom line is about profit to take over this service in conjunction with other organisations that are only interested in control rather than compassion is not in the best interest of the homeless community in this town.

  • Save Ward 6 Bishop Auckland Hospital
    This is of vital importance for people of the County Durham area. We are a nurse led unit who admit patients from Acute sites who are medically fit for discharge but may need more social input or would be unsafe to discharge home for example dementia patients, non- weight bearing patients and obese patients. The plans for these patients now is to discharge home for district nurses to see to but there are no proposals to increase the number of district nurses and when people spoke to them they were not aware of the proposals or how they were going to staff them!

  • Zero Rate VAT veterinary bills for registered Animal Charities
    The cost of vet bills are already high and a further 20% VAT charge is restricting the good work animal charities are doing. All good Animal charities insist that any animals that come into their care are neutered or spayed to keep the numbers down the VAT reduction Could be spent on more animals as most are Non for profit. Long term and short term treatments are also expensive and I believe the savings would help the charities with their day to day existence. Animals should have equal rights to the best welfare, Welfare of which for humans is zero rated

  • Keep Lloyds Bank in Buckley Open
    Closing Lloyds Bank in Buckley would be a huge loss to the community. Elderly people, those with mobility issues, people without access to the internet and local businesses would be cut off from vital banking services. A local branch makes banking accessible for disadvantaged people but also helps keep the highstreet alive. It is the only branch Lloyds are closing in Wales. A prompt meeting in person at a local branch cuts down on the cost of time. If it we to close, people would need to travel to Mold, over 4 miles away. KEEP LLOYDS BANK BUCKLEY OPEN & SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY!

  • Return Funding For High School Transport by Catchment Area
    Every parent of a child within Suffolk, that has to rely on funded school transport to High school from September 2019 will have to pay between £600-£800 pounds per child per year for continued transport to their current recognised catchment school. SCC will only fund travel to what it now considers to be a pupils nearest school, but nearest schools admissions policies for year 2019/20 prioritises places for students from its feeder and catchment Primary schools, not students from Primary schools outside of catchment. The financial implications for Suffolk families will be immense. Siblings may have to attend different High schools, as an older child already receiving funded transport will continue to do so but parents may not be able afford to fund a sibling or siblings. There is no guarantee that a child from a non feeder or out of catchment school will be accepted, so parents could be forced to pay for their child to attend a school, occur debt and hardship to do so, have to consider home schooling. SCC sent out an online transport survey this year to parents within Suffolk. According to a report by Councillor (County) Robert Lindsay 3600 responses were received, 85% strongly opposed these proposed changes and 5% opposed, but SCC still passed the changes. School Transport should be free and funded for all pupils.

  • Child maintenance service should cap pension contributions
    It is ludicrous that non resident parents are currently legally allowed in the UK to pay as much money as they want into a private pension for themselves to use later in life, so that by doing this it reduces their gross income so that the child maintenance payments calculated for them to pay to their child/children growing up is a lot less. This will have a huge impact on a lot of children growing up in single parent families and is simy wrong. Please sign this petition for this to be looked at and changed. Thankyou
