World Mental Health Awareness Day

This Wednesday, 10th October, is World Mental Health Awareness Day, aiming to get us all `talking openly about mental illnesses, and the treatments and preventions that are open to us'.

The Day will be incredibly embarrassing for Salford City Council, currently in the midst of a campaign to stop its mental health cuts – which has so far seen Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband and the Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, get involved (see here). Campaigners against the cuts are planning something special for the day, which we won't divulge here, to raise awareness of Salford Council's actions.

Elsewhere in Salford, the positive work being done with mental health disorders is being showcased at the ace Start in Salford project, which is holding an Open Day to highlight its creative workshops and some of the stunning art that has been produced.

It's open to everyone to go and have a look around, and begins at 10:30am with guided tours throughout the day. Visitors will see print making, knitting, forest crafts, enamelling and design workshops, music and photography exhibitions, and a staff v volunteers hockey match, with a physical activity workshop by Salford City Reds. There's also activities happening in Start's unique gardens.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL THREAT LETTER CAUSES ELDERLY CITIZENS ANGUISH

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

TONNES OF SALFORD RECYCLING PAPER REJECTED AS PEOPLE PUT WRONG STUFF IN BLUE BINS

Star date: 22nd October 2017

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
