Steve McCabe MP (Selly Oak MP and Shadow Minister for Children and Families)joined the national charity, the Dyspraxia Foundation as it launched the results of a new survey highlighting the huge levels of anxiety, fear or even dread felt by hundreds of secondary school children living with the developmental co-ordination disorder, dyspraxia.

 

Statistics reveal that 4.9% of the economically active population in Selly Oak are now claiming Job Seeker’s Allowance compared to 4.7% in August 2014. Selly Oak constituency continues to remain in the top 20% of constituencies for unemployment across the country.

 

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has launched a major call for evidence from individuals and religious organisations about the impact of religion in the workplace. As part of its mandate from Parliament, the Commission will look at the adequacy of the current legal framework for protecting rights to religion and belief. The aim of the review is to ensure that people’s right to be treated with fairness and respect is made a reality for employees, service users, employers and service providers.
