Here is the reminder of our April meeting, taking place on Monday the 18th of April, 6.30-8.30pm at LARC, 62 Fieldgate Street, Whitechapel E1 1ES.
Last month it was decided to dedicate the next meeting for a hands-on workshop on the theme of the welfare benefit reassessment procedures. The leader/representatives of several service users groups have been invitated to come along to collect some useful tips and info to take back to their respective circles and share the knowledge.
The workshop will be delivered by David Amery, from the Housing Link team and Dave Skull, member of the Mental Health Survivors Network, Creative Routes and Mad Pride: it will offer practical advice on how to fill the new forms and what the possible interview will be like.
This were the ACTION POINTS discussed at the last meeting:
-Thank Eamer for typing ground rules and suggesting the introduction of the "5min quick-news";
-Community Options YSYD event on 5th of May to discuss ESA;
-Funding for FEEL and strings attached; need to discuss the C.O. application;
-Feedback on Kingsley Hall workshop on 12th march: success and fails;
-MHRN meeting at Cooltanarts on 23rd of March 2-4pm, David Kessel to attend;
-Organise joint meeting with MHRN (Mental Health Resistance Network) and Housing Link on 18th April;
-Whiter FEEL? draft info/campaigning leaflet for discussion.
We look forward to start the workshop promptly and leave some time at the end of the meeting to discuss a few of the above points.
