  • Firmus Energy- We Cannot Afford a 12.2% Increase in Domestic Gas Prices
    Fuel poverty is a major issue in Northern Ireland. People are already having to choose if they should ' heat or eat.' This extraordinary price hike will make it impossible for people to heat their homes, dry their clothes and wash their children. Those worst affected will be low income families and those caring for elderly relatives or the disabled. Firmus is the main supplier of energy to those in social housing. Firmus say that they have no choice but to pass on to the customers the increases they have had to pay on the global gas markets. This is untrue. While gas prices spiked last year, they have continued to fall since.Gas prices on international markets are now similar to the prices large companies paid in February 2016.Prior to this point gas prices had been in almost continual decline for approximately 3 years. No one has received a 12.2% pay rise, there has been no similar increase to pensions and benefits. People simply cannot afford to pay this higher tariff. I cannot afford to heat my home. Please sign this petition asking for Firmus Energy to reconsider their price increases. We appreciate that that they must set their prices with profit in mind but to increase the cost to customers by 12.2% is not only unfair but is also morally wrong.

  • More NHS mental health hospitals need opening, not closing.
    When you're at a time where you're mentally distressed, to the point you need to be in hospital, knowing where you are plays a bigger role than you'd think. If you know you're up the road from your house, or a short bus ride away, it gives you peace of mind. You know you're family and friends will be able to visit you, and bring you things you might need. It also means you can have effective home leave before being discharged. Now imagine, you're being sent 100miles away from your home, to a place where you probably don't know anyone. What if no one in your family drives? You become alone and isolated, at a time where being around people who love you matters more than anything; but you're all alone instead. There are kids being sent far away! Some as young as 12. If you're far away, and you are in a unit where you can't use your mobile, how are you meant to stay in contact with friends? What if you're in that hospital for months? Having no familiarity makes you sink even lower. It is essential that more is done to improve the current bed crisis.

  • NO REFERENDUM 2 IN SCOTLAND
    https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/public38/images/public-only.gif Scotland has many issues that require immediate concentrated attention to avoid disaster. SNP's obsession with separation has already led to a total neglect of the Administration's duty of care to this country. As education, poverty, fiscal policy and deficit, NHS and policing have reached totally unacceptable levels, it is time to tackle these matters and stop the failure to govern competently. A further divisive referendum is completely inappropriate.

  • Fund the Cavell Centre, Peterborough
    Otherwise some people will die younger, some will not integrate with society, people at work will lose their jobs and effect local prosperity. Staff will not be able to work in a job they have trained hard to achieve. People will be at risk to themselves and others and will be unfairly accommodated in a police station. Remember, people with mental health problems are often highly skilled with a creative lateral thinking process.

  • PIP and Cystic Fibrosis
    Many people with long-term disabilities, lifelong illnesses and conditions have lost their financial support through the introduction of the PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE PAYMENT (PIP). Many people in England have to pay for their own prescriptions which is unfair on some of the most vulnerable members of our society, especially those who are unemployed because their illness or disability prevents them from doing so. I have Cystic Fibrosis and have to take up to 60-70 tablets a day to maintain my health. Without the financial support that was previously in place with DLA, I now have to pay for all my medication through my own pocket, as I have lost my entitlement to financial assistance like many more people that are in a similar position as myself. In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland this is not the case as those with long-term disabilities or lifelong conditions do receive free prescriptions. The Conservative government need to offer us a compromise after implementing PIP, where the guidelines are too strict. So, what I am petitioning for is equality for the population of England to bring it into line with the rest of the United Kingdom.

  • 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.
