Well I wonder if this new education minister can shake up the long awaited EHCP .There are lots off parents waiting to have the child’s EHCP UPDATED.which should be done annually but in my sons case the local authority. Keeps missing my sons out for the past 2years now I have to fight to get transport for my son to attend a special needs college..The local authority are telling me they don’t provide transport for 17year old students.the law states in the children act of 1989 they have to provide transport for students with send and EHCP. And medical needs.so I’m still fighting for this like many other parents.all local authorities need to be aware of this.stop using excuses after excuses.
At the very least, the cash crisis is causing all the children affected emotional (mental health) and significant harm at least.
The government need to come up with a ‘survival package’ of reusable sustainable items immediately to help families stay warm, like we have warm banks but not everyone is able to get to those always if at all. Another area needs looking round.
Also things like battery tealight candles incase families run out of electric due to fire risks been left in the dark with no light. Wax candles need to be watched.
This really has turned into the haybox era now and it’s getting too late this year for bbq’s.
It’s a risk to human life all this at worst and the children are our future generation who have human rights which has to be met.
MP’s should all be looking at setting up or encouraging the set up of survival packages different to food banks food items (already in place) to help deal with what is feeling like the next humanity crisis.
There could be drop off/collection points/Local delivery services all voluntarily for material items needed which would all help alleviate some of the pressures now for children and their families. The reward would be a whole lot of gratitude for their kindness. (Optional) Hot soup could be thrown in and hot bevarages for a tiny amount of money.
Something like a slow cooker which uses less energy should be included in them too.
A barber local in Redditch I saw in the newspaper is giving free haircuts to children with struggling families and is encouraging other barbers to follow suit. What an amazing person he truly is 😘🙏 Xxxx
‘The review, Fuel Poverty, Cold Homes And Health Inequalities, is led by IHE director Professor Michael Marmot, who warned that growing up in cold homes will have “dangerous consequences” for many children now and into adulthood.
It is feared that thousands of extra deaths could occur and the health and development of up to 10 million children could be affected directly or indirectly.
Cold homes adversely affect children’s development, and cause and worsen respiratory conditions and mental health problems.’
