Star date: 10th September 2016

HOUSE OF MEMORIES DEMENTIA AWARENESS DAY

This Sunday is National Dementia Carers' Day, and, to coincide, family and carers of people with dementia are being invited to take part in free House of Memories workshops in November at Salford Museum and Art Gallery to provide help in understanding the experience of living with dementia and being a carer.

This Sunday, 11th September, marks National Dementia Carers' Day, which recognises the contribution family and informal carers make by caring for people living with dementia at home.

Since 2012, National Museums Liverpool has been providing dementia awareness training to over 10,000 carers across the country, and last year, set up workshops for family carers to provide them with new ideas and perspectives, which it's bringing to Salford Museum and Art Gallery on Monday 14th November.

The workshops include character-based video stories to help participants understand the experience of living with dementia and being a carer, trials of the award-winning My House of Memories app, and taking part in dementia-friendly activities at the Museum to show how cultural venues can be a resource in helping to unlock memories, improve communication and understanding, and enrich the lives of those living with dementia.

"We set up our first workshops for family carers in Liverpool last year, to provide them with new ideas and perspectives on caring for their loved ones" says Carol Rogers, Executive Director of Education and Visitors at National Museums Liverpool "Person-centred care is at the heart of our workshops, and acknowledges that an individual's personal history and memory is of huge importance.

"We know that dementia is an emotional subject to talk about, particularly if it affects a person you love" she adds "When you're caring for someone on a daily basis, it can be hard to see past the every day tasks. We have received some incredible feedback from previous workshops, and we hope people will take the opportunity to join us so we can steer them in a positive direction, and help improve the lives of those they care for who are living with dementia."

National Museums Liverpool's House of Memories programme has been commissioned by the Department of Health as part of the Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia 2020.

House of Memories Workshops
Monday 14th November 9:30am-12:30pm, and 1:30pm-4:30pm
Free places can be booked by emailing

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.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.
