CONGRATULATIONS to JANET DABY MP a hard working community activist who has worked for years in our community.
I’m thrilled that tomorrow morning #Lewisham’s children (particularly girls, Black, Asian and mixed race young people) will wake up to a great role model they can relate to
#forthemanynotthefew UK Labour
TONIGHT at #Lewisham Council Mayor & Cabinet: Labour Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock directed Officers to halt planned savings to #CAMHS Children & Adolescent Mental Health Services in the Borough.
Against a background of more than 60% of the Council’s budget being cut by Government, yet soaring needs of children, and a growing national crisis, I’m glad Sir Steve is stopping and looking for alternatives.
Most of CAMHS funding comes from the NHS, but they too have seen growing pressure as a result of the longest squeeze in health spending since the NHS was created
Be under no disillusionment, it’s Tory austerity that has exacerbated the child mental health crisis. Perversely, Tory cuts are also reducing support available to young people. If we are to stop the cuts to local government and the cuts to our NHS, if we are to give young people the support they need, we need a Labour Government🌹
We have been awarded £20million by the Government to build new homes in Catford and Lewisham town centres.
The £20 million grant was awarded by the Housing Infrastructure Fund on 1 February. We will use it to:
- move the South Circular in Catford, which will provide more land for housing and transform the town centre with new homes, new jobs and new open spaces
- fund new affordable homes in Lewisham town centre.
James-J Walsh, Local Councilor, said: ‘We have achieved a significant milestone in the development and regeneration for Rushey Green, Catford. For decades the ambition has been to remove the South Circular from dividing the town centre in two and rejuvenate the civic heart of the Borough; we’ve progressed more in the last four year’s of this administration towards that goal, than the last four decades’.
We celebrate #LGBTHistoryMonth because: “those who’ve had to go and fight for their basic human rights, and won them against insurmountable odds, deserve celebration & reaffirmation, that we will continue to defend and extend those rights everywhere, and to everyone”. #LGBT #lgbthm18 #lgbthm #itgetsbetter
