Weekly drop-in surgery up and running
Community Action and Advice
Our campaign started with how do we address the attack on social housing tenants and in particular the ‘bedroom tax’. Through this we came together to support tenants to learn about the appeals process and access their rights to maintain social housing, this led onto welfare benefits support.
We expect to have some mission creep: –
To challenge the attacks on all in our communities through numerous means, which includes Welfare Cuts, NHS, Social Housing, Education, Local Councils, and the whole of our welfare state.
We will need to expand our capacity to this end we would perticualy wish to engage with others who have ‘Tribunal’ experience (perhaps ex-trade union reps) and are willing to give some time to this venture
We now have weekly drop-in advice surgery: –
The Venue is:
St James Community Centre on St James Square.
Every Friday 10:30am – 1:00pm
