A pamper and play day is coming to the Angel Centre next Saturday, as Visit From The Stork CIC holds a Women In Bloom Superhero Day to encourage parents to find ways of taking time out for themselves and improving their mental health and wellbeing.

Next Saturday, 27th October, Visit from the Stork CIC is holding a Women In Bloom event at the Angel Centre, a family fun Superhero Day aimed at parents and families with babies and under 5s.

The day will feature sessions in Mindfulness by North Manchester Mindfulness, Relax Time and Baby Relax by Empathy Holistics, and Massages from Little Haven at Home. There will also be stalls and a hot lunch provided. The idea is to encourage parents to find ways of taking a time out for themselves and improving their mental health and wellbeing.

"As a social enterprise we help parents tackle taboo subjects and perinatal mental health is a very important subject to be aware of and talk about" says Kimberly Bond, Managing Director of Visit from the Stork CIC.

"20% of women are affected by mental illness either during pregnancy or in the twelve months after giving birth" she explains "This includes PND, PTSD from traumatic birth or from caring for an ill baby. It is vital that women have the support they need to get through this period.

"Women in Bloom aims to bring together local mums from all backgrounds, connect them with services and organisations they need in the local community, and give them a great day out with some treats for themselves and their families" she adds "This is a great opportunity for parents to have some time out before a week of Trick or Treating Is upon them!"

Rachel Parkinson, Project Manager for BOOBS (Be Open on Breastfeeding Salford), which is helping to organise the event adds: "BOOBS will be hosting our Play Garden which will have toys for babies and toddlers and comfy seats for parents, for them to safely feed and play with their little ones, and have a safe space to come and talk to us if they need to.

"Sharing stories and experiences is so important for parents, so we can learn from each other and help those who may be struggling to get through the hard times" she says "Through our project we encourage parents to share their stories – whether they have breastfed for one day, six months, two years or not at all. We provide listening support, encouragement and friendship to everyone; Women in Bloom will be a great event to come and make some new friends and share experiences."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
