Events & Invitations

Next FEEL event is being organised for Friday the 10th June, 7-9pm. We are being allowed to use St Johns Church of Bethnal Green, how blessed! Lingo will be contained for the respect of all :o)

Please note that the front of the church is being renovated and the scaffold is covered in red canvas. In case you are feeling lost, please note that the way IN is still via the main gate in Cambridge Heat Road.

Double Attack on Our Mental Health

• Service Users claiming Income Support or Incapacity Benefit will be switched to Income Support Allowance & may loose £27 a week.

• East London community mental health services are being cut by £14.6 million with a loss of 97 posts. This will include Tower Hamlets, City & Hackney and Newham boroughs and doesn't stop there.

Meet with Mental Health Resistance Network to plan our fight back!

Among the speakers there will be:
George Paton: spokeperson from UNISON;

David Amery (Housing Link) will offer information about the benefit reassessment procedure;

Dave Skull will update us on the work done by the Mental Health Resistance Network and the Legal Action they are working on. No time to wait and see...

Last week events, a week long protest, the Hardest Hit March and the news coming from Birmingham encourage people to get involved in the decision of their own fate, rather than wait and see... Even share and spread the info is a bit of action.
