• Playgrounds for all
    All children have the right to access provisions whether that be swimming pools, sport halls, cinemas, in other words ALL public places. However, for those children living with a disability, especially those with a physical disability, many never get to experience playing in a playground. It is imperative for all children to develop and the only way that can happen, is by accessing different environments. For any child to experience the movement of a swing, the wind on their face, to feel the movement of a roundabout, or a sea-saw, then to see the joy on their faces. This doesn't happen for those children who are disabled. This petition is asking the Minister for the Disabled Tom Pursglove |MP to take action by enabling and legislating for all playgrounds in the country to be accessible so that children will no longer feel that they are being barred from such a facility, through no fault of their own.

  • Members of Parliament should only have one job
    We vote to put people into positions of responsibility in order to represent our best interests as constituents. They have a moral and ethical duty to carry out those responsibilities to the exclusion of all other considerations. By forbidding them to take on other responsibilities we ensure that they devote their time in office to meeting our most pressing needs.

  • Inclusion for all children at holiday camps
    Holiday clubs carry a huge responsibility when it comes to disability. They represent the first few experiences my daughter (and other children with disabilities) have of society outside the protection of a loving family and hopefully a supportive school. They can either reinforce a sense of “I am different, but I am equal to everyone else”, or they expose disabled children to a negative sense of “I am different, I am a burden, I am excluded”. Each time a club says no, and a child is excluded, it's a little chip at their self-esteem and a lowering of expectations for their future self. According to a survey by Scope, the disability charity, nearly half of disabled adults surveyed feel excluded by society and day to day life. Two thirds have stopped doing something because of other people’s attitudes. This doesn’t happen overnight. It’s all these little negative experiences that chip away at them over time. It's totally unacceptable in today's society.

  • We call on our MP, Alun Cairns, to stand up for humanity and support a Ceasefire in Gaza!
    What is the problem? Civilian deaths in Gaza continue to rise at a staggering rate amid relentless Israeli bombardment, in response to the horrific attacks in Israel by Hamas and other armed groups that resulted in 1,400 people killed and the abduction of civilians. More than 10,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in Gaza including through indiscriminate and other unlawful attacks. More than a third of casualties in Gaza are children and countless bodies are still trapped beneath the rubble. Millions more face further displacement, dispossession and suffering.   Israel’s tightened siege of Gaza has blocked the entry of goods, including water, food and fuel leaving more than 2 million people in the Gaza Strip struggling to survive. The humanitarian catastrophe stemming from Israel’s 16-year-long illegal blockade on the occupied Gaza Strip will only get worse if the fighting doesn’t stop immediately. Serious violations of international humanitarian law, including war crimes, by all parties to the conflict continue unabated. In the face of such unfettered devastation and suffering, humanity must prevail. A ceasefire would put a stop to unlawful attacks by all parties, halt the mounting death toll in Gaza and enable aid agencies to get life-saving aid, water and medical supplies into the Strip to address the staggering levels of human suffering. It will also allow hospitals to receive life-saving medicines, fuel and equipment they desperately need and to repair damaged wards.  A ceasefire would also provide opportunities to negotiate the release of hostages detained in Gaza and for independent international investigations to take place into the war crimes committed by all parties in order to end long-standing impunity, which will continue to breed further atrocities. Tackling the root causes of this conflict, by dismantling Israel’s system of apartheid imposed on Palestinians is now more urgent than ever.

  • Stop the government cuts to disability benefits
    There is no evidence they have jobs ready for people to go into. The current turn around for new/renewed claims is over 12 months. You cannot put vulnerable people into work with out the right support for both their mental and physical needs.

  • Petition to Promote Honest and Transparent Communication Regarding All Hallows Hall's Future Plans
    Over the past 11 years, All Hallows Community Co-op (AHCC) has been a steward of All Hallows Hall, transforming it into a vibrant and inclusive space that has positively impacted the lives of over 70,000 individuals. Through their perseverance and dedication, AHCC has not only paid over £100,000 in rent but has also invested £150,000 in improvements to the building, making it a cornerstone of our community. The impact of AHH extends beyond its physical space. AHCC has generated over £250,000 through weekly classes, events, rehearsals, and hires. By hosting hundreds of events and successfully warding off two attempts to convert AHH into flats, they have contributed to making our neighborhood safer and more enjoyable for local residents. It is crucial to emphasize the significance of independent community spaces like AHH. Across the country, such venues are closing at an alarming rate, disenfranchising grassroots, DIY, not-for-profit local community ventures. The potential privatization of AHH could have severe consequences on the physical and mental health of local residents, exacerbating loneliness and eroding the vibrant community fabric that AHCC has worked tirelessly to build. Beyond being a village hall of sorts, AHH stands as Easton and Lawrence Hills' largest and most charismatic performance theatre and music venue. Losing such a cultural hub would not only be a blow to our artistic and cultural identity but would also create a void that cannot be easily filled. All Hallows Hall and AHCC have served as a hub of engagement, learning, well-being, and togetherness, with an impressive 10,000 users from diverse social and geographical backgrounds annually. This space has proven itself as an essential resource for the community, enriching lives and fostering a sense of belonging. Given the rich history and positive impact of AHH, we kindly request that the new owners, engage with the community in an honest and transparent manner regarding your plans for the future of All Hallows Hall. We believe that involving the community in the decision-making process will ensure that the legacy and positive impact of this space continue to thrive. Thanks for your support

    The richest 1% of people pollute more than the 5 billion poorest. That means while people like us are doing our best to recycle and drive less, billionaires and millionaires are jetting about the place without a care in the world. It’s just come out that the super rich ‘polluter-elite’ are using up way more than their fair share of our resources, right before Prime Minister Rishi Sunak heads to a meeting with world leaders to discuss climate solutions next week. Rishi Sunak could use this opportunity to show leadership and crack down on excessive flyers. While this is all over the news, a huge petition calling for a tax on the top fliers in the UK - not normal people going on a family holiday - could help get this on the political agenda and stop rich people from plundering the planet without caring about the rest of us.
