Hello Everyone

So I am back from a couple of days annual leave. Very nice to have a long weekend, chill but like most people household chores, pets to feed and walk, shopping.  Gone are the days of being a singleton and sleeping all day long, but seriously it was nice and now happy to be back.  Hope everyone is feeling tip top and as usual if you need support let us know.

Is there someone that depends on you? Are you an unpaid carer?

We are reaching out to all unpaid carers who either receive or are eligible for carers allowance or provide close contact personal care to someone vulnerable to Covid-19 as part of priority group 6 for Covid-19 vaccination. We’re working with our partner Carers Centre Tower Hamlets to register unpaid carers on behalf of NHS England, who will send out invites to anyone who is eligible.

Have your say on the future of the Robert Milligan statue

The Canal & River Trust are consulting on the future of the Robert Milligan statue and plinth, which was removed from its location in the London Docklands last year.

They are seeking local views on what should happen to the statue and remaining plinth and how best to talk about the area’s historical relationship to slavery, including how to tell the story of Robert Milligan’s statue. The consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 23 April.


New scheme to support domestic violence victims

A new scheme – Ask for ANI (Action Needed Immediately) – has been launched to help as many domestic abuse victims as possible, especially at the moment when they could be stuck in lockdown with a perpetrator.

Developed by the Home Office, it provides a discreet way for victims of domestic abuse to signal that they need emergency help from the safety of participating pharmacies (including all Boots stores).
