Steve McCabe MP visits Headway, Brain injury charity’s rehabilitation centre

Steve McCabe MP is demanding a meeting with Minister of State for Disabled People after being inundated with complaints from vulnerable constituents about the Personal Independent Payment application process.

The scheme is organised by local activist and community campaigner Roger Dennis who has reclaimed the land at the rear of the Brandwood Centre, adjacent to the railway embankment, and is now putting it to good use. It had previously been used as a dumping ground for all sorts of rubbish and had become an overgrown jungle.

 

 

The fall in the unemployment rate to 6.9% for the UK as a whole is positive but look a little deeper and the story isn’t so rosy in all parts of the country. Unemployment actually rose in the West Midlands to 8.2% and the number of people claiming Job Seekers Allowance in Birmingham Selly Oak constituency still remains in the top 20% of the country.
