  • MAKE PIP/ESA CLAIMS FAIR BASED ON FACTS
    You're messing with peoples lives and this system is wrong and cruel and was invented by someone who couldnt care less. I lost my job because the NHS did not give me my treatment when i needed it, I was awarded DLA indefinately then it was taken away when PIP took over, I'm now in £7,000 worth of dept because i had to buy my mobility car as i cant use public transport. I have an outwork job which pays below the minimum wage but its work, I want to work but i also need help. but i; like millions of others don't seem to matter. This system is not fair and needs to be changed.

  • 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.

  • Zebra Crossing King Street Winterton
    There is no crossing facilities at all other than several speed bump crossing zones on earlsgate, with several in place on the same road. The lower end of the village has no crossing provision at all. All children utilise the church on a daily basis, plus there are vulnerable adults in the village that would gain some independence if they could cross the road safely to get to the shops.

  • Stop the government from spending 500 million on a new passport design.
    With the nhs crumbling around us and the number of people on the streets with nowhere to live...... it's stupidity of the highest order to spend 500 million on cosmetically redesigning a passport which works fine as it is

  • Fighting for the rights of people living in supported accommodation
    This is important because the living standards are unsafe for young people and parents to live in. It is also singling out the residents living at the properties giving them next to no connection to their families and friends

  • Drug companies should contribute financially to give support for the elderly in social care
    It is unethical to profit from a very vulnerable, although massive percentage of the population, in the name of progress. Quality of life has to be a major contributory factor when people are kept alive and "well". How can society justify this unethical practice when all we can offer is a longer life (with the help of medicines) for a great deal of these people who often live in misery and isolation with at best, for many, a 15 minute call from a carer, which may be the only human contact they have on a daily basis, at worst no human contact for several days at a time? My elderly parents (both in their 90's) are fortunate, as they have 5 caring children, who assist in the domestic, shopping , transport, outings and upkeep of their home. Others are not so fortunate. We need to campaign to look at solutions to this ever growing challenge of making the elderly a target for government often directing their "blame" for the state of our health and social care services. They don't just need basic care, but recreation and socialisation to ensure a good quality of life. Ian Wright my local MP (Hartlepool) has ignored my email so please help with this campaign to raise awareness of this plight on behalf of our elderly population and get at least a debate in Parliament on this emotive issue. We owe it to them.

  • Stop Councils from taking people's disability benefits to pay for their care
    Since the introduction of the Care Act, many local authorities are reassessing people's ability to pay for their own care and/or support. My daughter relies on her support worker to help her to live independently. For the last 6 years she has received funding from the Local Authority to pay a support worker to help her cook meals, shop, keep her flat clean, deal with correspondence, go to medical appointments and get out and about. Without any warning or discussion, it stopped on the same day she was visited to 'check' she was receiving the right amount of benefits. A subsequent letter informed her that after the general living allowance was deducted from her benefits, there was enough income left to pay for her own care. The Government 'say' that she needs £x amount to live on then our Local Authority say she can live on less than half the benefit amount. It is very wrong and very soon you will be talking to someone who is affected by these assessments (parents of disabled adults, people with aging parents and/or people who need care). Please support this campaign to force Local Authorities to ignore disability benefits when assessing people's ability to pay for their own care so they can exercise choice and control over their lives.
