• Force the increase of funding and training for Mental Health Crisis teams in Staffordshire.
    This is important because too many people, friends and family are not getting the help they need when they call a crisis team, there needs to be a better infrastructure in place to guide people back from the edge and put things in place to get them the correct therapies and medications to help them recover.

  • Clean air for our kids: ban engine idling outside schools in Suffolk
    When cars and lorries are waiting at schools or level crossings with their engines on, also known as engine idling, studies show that it can have an adverse affect on children's health. That's why Stowmarket Eco Future Group decided to come together to ask Suffolk Country Council to take action on air pollution caused by engine idling. Every bit of carbon emission that can be saved is not only vitally important for the planet, but also for the health of our children and young people who breathe in these damaging fumes. That is why we are asking Suffolk County Council to pass a Bylaw which prohibits engine idling outside schools. With over 260 schools and colleges in Suffolk, this would make a significant difference to the health of people and the planet.

  • South Gloucestershire Council: Back the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill
    We are joining with the Climate and Ecological Emergency Alliance (Bristol), to demand action from our councillors. On current trends, our children will experience an unthinkable 3 to 5 degrees of global warming within 80 years! 2020 was the joint hottest year on record and the hottest six years on record have all occurred since 2016. The UK Government’s target is to go carbon neutral by 2050. But this is too late, because the world is set to exceed the dangerous limit of 1.5°C warming by 2040, causing irreversible harm and costing millions of lives. In fact, Government advisers also say that the UK is not on track to meet its own target. We call on South Gloucestershire Council to show leadership, by declaring support for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill (CEE Bill). In July 2019, South Gloucestershire Council achieved unanimous cross party cooperation and declared a Climate Emergency, setting out a strategy to be carbon neutral by 2030. The CEE Bill is a game-changing vehicle for positive action. It is a draft law which has been introduced to Parliament and already has the support of around 100 MPs. The Bill would ensure that the UK Government plays its fair and proper role in limiting global warming to the 1.5°C recommended by scientists. It would include our carbon emissions from aviation, shipping and international trade, which are currently ignored! It would set up a Citizens’ Assembly, representative of the people who make up UK society, to advise on the Government’s emergency strategy. We call on our elected representatives to work together again, in the interests of our future generations, and to show climate leadership!

  • Give Billy Monger recognition for what he has achieved
    After being critically injured in 2017, he has managed to recover, and although he has had both legs amputated, he has resumed his motor racing career. His epic comic relief challenge has been nothing less than remarkable - covering 140 miles over four days by walking, cycling and kayaking.. He is an inspiration to all of us. Captain Sir Tom Moore was our hero in 2020, Billy Whizz is our hero for 2021

  • Listen to Meghan: Stop press bullying
    They did it to Meghan and Harry. They did it to Caroline Flack, to Gareth Thomas and Ben Stokes, and to hundreds of ordinary people every year. Just to sell newspapers and make money. Press abuse - the publication of relentlessly intrusive, untrue, and often personally abusive stories about people in national newspapers - has to stop. Many of the people affected are well-known. That shouldn't make them fair game for newspapers to attack for a quick profit. But thousands of the people attacked in the press are not well-known at all. They are victims of terrorist incidents, small business-owners, academics. Anyone who is caught up in a news-worthy event, or who even publicly says something which a newspaper finds objectionable. Newspapers get away with this behaviour because they aren't regulated. The BBC is regulated, and so is the news on other TV stations and the radio. Yet most newspapers remain outside of any independent form of accountability (they are members of a body called "IPSO" instead, which doesn't have regulatory powers and is controlled by the press). We need the Government to act to stop press bullying & abuse. Add your name today.

  • Stop Barclays Bank closing their Brentford branch in June 2021
    The closure would be a devastating blow and it would leave our community with neither a bank nor a post office. The nearest Barclays branches, and branches of any other bank, would be at Ealing Broadway, Hounslow High Street, Chiswick High Road, and Richmond town centre. Many in our community, including the most vulnerable, have no access to online banking facilities and they would find it very difficult indeed to conduct their affairs at other bank branches. During the current Covid crisis it is particularly inappropriate to require customers to travel considerable distances, often by public transport. In recent years, Brentford has experienced very considerable increases in population and this growth will accelerate in the coming few years. We would suggest that the imminent closure of this branch is entirely inappropriate and may, in the fullness of time, be regarded as a very poor business decision

  • ROLLER SKATE SPACE FOR CLISSOLD PARK
    UPDATE: If you agree, please sign this petition and ALSO complete the Hackney Public Consultation survey on IF and where to create this space. Link to Hackney survey below. The consultation is happening NOW and they want to use the space for gym equipment - so please sign this petition and complete the survey, linked below, ASAP. https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/parks-green-spaces/clissold-consultation/?fbclid=IwAR2ZTnEApk1E3DANcmCwvde9u_c7snSPt1Ab5gnx9ybvXJe60jzKRZbxIFE WHY? Roller Sports need to be given the same recognition as tennis and golf. Marginalised for decades, roller skating has taken off during lockdown across all generations. Skate retailers are reporting a 800% uplift in sales of skates since the start of Lockdown 12 months ago. It is an all inclusive amazing aerobic fitness activity that is a great leveler. On a Fitbit it will show the same level of excercise as running. It provides a community for teenagers, children and adults including wheel chair users learn and share constructive skills in a socially distant way. It raises your heart rate and is excellent for muscle tone, dancing and all round fitness. Teachers are reporting waiting lists of 300 students who will need to conduct their classes on reclaimed park pathways - if they can find any that are smooth enough to skate on and if they don't get moved on. It encourages communication between different generations and is a wonderful family activity. I have observed how skaters all learn together and teach one another. It is socially distant and for teenagers especially it gives a safe, SOBER, social environment to see their friends. The tennis courts are a safe place to learn as roller skating can not be done on normal park pathways. It really does require a completely smooth surface to avoid accidents and there is nowhere in or near Stoke Newington to do this. The people signing this petition agree that this is an activity that should be supported and a suitable space created within the park or accommodated within the tennis courts. Roller skaters are talked of as a subculture but when given official space it attracts huge numbers of people and has done for 40 years. Currently roller skaters are too often relegated to car parks or in this case the illegal tennis courts. Stoke Newington has one of the highest birth rates in Europe and I for one do not want my teenagers to have to do this. A skate rink would give somewhere legal and safe for teenagers, adults and children to share. We have the support of the TeamGB speed skating champion Adrian Wordsworth and Wheelchair skating charity founder Isaac Harvey (www.Wheelsandwheelchairs.co.uk). HACKNEY SURVEY - THEY WANT TO HEAR OUR IDEAS!!! Hackney are currently running a public consultation on how to re-develop the old paddling pool (which is being re-sited and enlarged elsewhere in the park). The idea being presented at the moment is gym equipment. I believe a far greater number of local residents would benefit from including a large skate space as well as or instead of the gym equipment. This idea was put forward before lockdown. But during lockdown the roller skating explosion in the tennis courts have proven the huge local demand and we must show our support for this idea by completing the survey here (copy and paste): https://consultation.hackney.gov.uk/parks-green-spaces/clissold-consultation/?fbclid=IwAR2ZTnEApk1E3DANcmCwvde9u_c7snSPt1Ab5gnx9ybvXJe60jzKRZbxIFE

  • Improve Heacham skatepark
    Our skatepark in Heacham provides vital exercise and social experiences for young people, however, it is not attractive or completely safe, meaning parents and children feel discouraged. This means a lack of healthy children and an eyesore in a communal area. It is now more important than ever that our public spaces are maintained and upgraded to support the community's physical and mental health. The 11-18 age bracket is an often overlooked demographic, and a functional and attractive communal area is vital for our well-being.

  • Nurses Pay-rises 2021
    We have to reward and recognise what every nurse has been through not only during lockdown but every single day. In addition how will we be able to encourage the next generations to work hard to qualify when they will be getting paid peanuts. Then the government will pay agency nurses or get people in from overseas again at a more greater cost to us the taxpayers.
