Shelter Bristol are recruiting for a new Women’s Peer Research Volunteer and have asked us at the Forum to promote the role.
You would conduct research into the issues women and families are experiencing when it comes to bad housing and homelessness. The role would also involve you conducting research into the barriers that are preventing women from accessing the advice and support they need.
The role would take up seven hours a week for four months but can be fitted around your schedule. The job is home based and in the Bristol hub (in line with government guidelines).
We’re sharing an online Change.org petition created by Trina Thompson that is calling for the Government to reverse “do not resuscitate” orders on COVID-19 patients with Learning Difficulties.
People with Learning Disabilities have been given do not resuscitate orders during the second wave of the pandemic, in spite of widespread condemnation of the practice last year and an urgent investigation by the care watchdog.
This is a serious human rights issue and cannot be allowed to continue in this day and age. We must join together and show we will not stand by and allow this horrific practice to continue.
