THE Civic Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Joyce Bowerman, is lending her wholehearted support to a drive to recruit more Marie Curie supporters in Tameside.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Marie Curie provides home care for people with any terminal illness as well as emotional support for their loved ones. Their aim is to help families get the most from the time they have left.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Cllr Bowerman explained: “I have personal experience of the wonderful work the Marie Curie nurses do. They cared for my father when he was dying from lung cancer and that’s why I have made them part of my charity appeal fund.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“It’s a very sad fact that someone in the UK dies every five minutes without getting all the care they could have. That’s why I want more fund-raisers in Tameside. Marie Curie believe everyone should be able to get the care they need at the end of their life.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Marie Curie nurses work night and day and there is also a confidential helpline for anyone who has questions about any aspect of terminal illness, needs support, or just wants to talk. An online information hub has leaflets to download, films and other links.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The support groups are made up of ordinary people of all ages who are passionate about the charity and want to help it. They tend to meet on a monthly basis and organise collections and fund-raising events such as tea parties and quiz nights.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Tameside has two very successful groups – Hyde and Denton, and Ashton – but a combination of age, failing health and other commitments means that new members are needed if they are to continue their good work.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Mayor added: “These amazing people have done, and continue to do, a really fantastic job. However, they aren’t as young as they used to be and can no longer commit themselves in the same way.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
“They badly need new blood and I’m appealing to the people of Tameside to join them so that they can continue their fabulous and much-needed work.”

Property for Profit, a Pension or a Headache?

 
THERE can surely be few more traumatic experiences in life than to risk losing your home.
 
 
To make sure the situation occurs as little as possible in the borough’s social housing, Tameside Council has organised the Tameside Pre-eviction Protocol through its homelessness prevention strategy. The aim is to identify problems as quickly as possible so there is plenty of time to offer help and prevent eviction.
 
 
The protocol was launched at the offices of Tameside Housing Advice (THA) on Friday, September 2. The event was attended by Cllr Ged Cooney, Tameside Council’s executive member with responsibility for housing; and representatives of nine housing associations including New Charter, Ashton Pioneer Homes, Peak Valley and Regenda.
 
 
Cllr Cooney said: “Through the protocol we want to make sure people have support when they need it. Usually, problems are caused by rent arrears. Over the last year, by taking early action, our debt advice team has been able to help three quarters of residents facing these issues to stay in their own homes.
 
 
“Tameside Council recognises that housing providers can’t allow rent arrears to spiral out of control, which is why our dealings with them are built on strong two-way communication.
 
 
“The pre-eviction protocol is a great example of partnership working. We have almost 20 organisations sharing information and working closely to do all they can to make sure people don’t get evicted.”
 
 
As well as debt problems, the protocol looks at matters such as anti-social behaviour. Initial referrals are made to Tameside Housing Advice, which makes a full assessment of the case before deciding on the appropriate course of action.
 
 
THA now shares the same building on Old Street, Ashton, with Tameside Debt Advice (TDA). This has vastly improved the working relationship and allows TDA to be brought in as soon as may be necessary.
 
 
Housing providers are kept fully informed throughout the process.
