Families experiencing problems with housing, debt or food insecurity in London
...We want to hear from you!
4in10 and Children England want to hear from working families in London who are experiencing issues with housing, problem debt, or food insecurity, as a result of low paid or insecure work.
We are running 3 small focus groups. The feedback will be used in our campaigning and advocacy work, but all participant responses will be anonymised. Refreshments will be provided and there will be a £20 high street voucher for each participant as a thank you. We can offer financial support for your childcare during the session if needed. Participants must come from households where there is at least one person working (doesn’t have to be full time), and where there is at least one child.
Problem debt focus group – Wednesday 7th September 10.30 – 11.30am
Housing issues focus group – Wednesday 7th September 12.00 – 13.00pm
Food insecurity focus group – Thursday 8th September 10.30 – 11.30am
All sessions will take place at The Lift, 45 White Lion Street, Islington, N1 9PW.
Organisations can download a flyer or some short text to circulate this information to service users.
For more information or to register your interest for a focus group please contact Hannah Slater indicating which session you would like to take part in - Hannah.email@example.com
Tackling holiday hunger:
A free good practice workshop. Register here
1pm - 5pm, Thursday 22 September 2016 Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD.
This summer, research from the Trussell Trust showed that 1in 5 parents will skip meals to feed their children. For an increasing number of families the loss of access to free school meals during the holidays, brings an unprecedented level of hunger. Our workshop will explore:
• The levels of hunger that children are facing in the school holidays
• The impact of holiday hunger on educational attainment
• How local authorities and the voluntary sector are working to tackle holiday hunger
• The key asks to the GLA, the new Mayor, and local authorities to address hunger in London.
The event is free: Please join us for lunch from 1pm. Register here.
