Austerity Uncovered

Wages, Poverty & Pay Day Loans
Date: Time: Venue: Register: Thursday 20th June 5pm refreshments – finish 6.30pm The Flensburg Room, Civic Centre, Carlisle Melanie Lowden, mlowden@tuc.org.uk by 14th June.

Wages are being squeezed, living standards are in decline and some of the poorest in society are being hit hard by welfare cuts and changes. This meeting brings together those wanting to make a difference either locally, regionally or nationally. Together we will examine the scale of the problems and discuss what positive action we can each take. Speakers: Welcome by Alan McGuckin, Chair of the Cumbria Forum, Cllr Jessica Riddle, Carlisle City Council (Communities and Housing) Rachael Rodway, Carlisle Foodbank and Neil Foster, TUC Policy and Campaigns Officer. It is hoped to have a representative in attendance to talk about the Loan Shark campaign. Participants are being encouraged to bring an item of food from the foodbank list – see the website for details http://carlislefoodbank.org.uk/shopping-list.html To coincide with the seminar, the Austerity Uncovered tour bus will be coming to Carlisle – the bandstand on English Street – arriving around 3.00pm – further information to follow.
