"The link takes me to a Word doc I think then nothing. I think it’s appalling that the City thinks so little of its residents. It’s time the business vote was abolished."

Money for Repairs

On the 13th January there was a full City Council meeting where Sue Pearson, your local Common Councillor, proposed a motion that the repairs programme for all the City Estates be accelerated by using some of the City’s financial reserves. The repairs programme is moving incredibly slowly even by the City’s standards with the last 5 year plan being inadequately funded while the Estates decay and tenants live in unacceptable conditions. The City has a fund called City Cash which has reserves of £2.6 billion. They have dedicated £50 million of this money to support small business during the pandemic but nothing to support residents. £37 million of this money has not been spent and Sue suggested that, as a start, it might be a good idea to redirect this to Estate repairs.At the Council meeting discussion of the motion was cut short by a point of order and the the motion to speed up repair of your Estates was lost by 75 votes to 19.

I have signed up with the Alzheimer's Society to become a Dementia Champion. My training is on the 15th July. After that I will seek to deliver their short Dementia Friends awareness session to as many groups and individuals as I can.

If you would like to attend such a session please let me know.

Hi Christine.  Good for you.  

My partner John was diagnosed with the onset of this last year.  It is heartbreaking to see sometimes how he is not the person  he was, but we cope as best we can.  What makes me so angry, and, I hope you don't mind me saying so, is the cruel way the COL are treating me, his carer,  by ignoring the fact that I am unwell in my own right, despite medical evidence, and not addressing, or acknowledging  my need for a 'support' dog, which I won the right to in a court case about 18 years ago.  John and I are on our own, apart from my elderly Mum, who is amazing.  As most people know, caring for a person with dementia is hard, especially if the carer has health issues too.  I am on virtually maximum medication for a psychological illness, which the COL are aware of.  Yet, I get no support, particularly from the Estate management.  

You say you are receiving training.  Well done for having the compassion to do so.  I respect you.
