Bringing Society To Psychology
Hello Ning members!
**PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR NETWORKS**
We are super excited to advertise our next talk/discussion on 4th June 2018 at 18:30-20:30 at the Common House- https://www.commonhouse.org.uk/event/the-housing-and-mental-health-...
Maria Stephens will be joining us to speak about her work with the Children's Rights Alliance for England and the Change It!campaign #homes4children challenging problems of children and families in temporary accommodation.
The Change It! campaign is led by children and young people who are passionate about making life better for all children and young people. The team is made up of 26 members, aged eight to 20 years old who come from all over England. They want to make a change and believe children and young people need to be listened to. Many of them have lived in temporary housing like Bed and Breakfasts (B&Bs), sometimes for months on end. Living in dirty, over crowded places with no space to play or do homework affects children's lives - you might be bullied at school, experience mental health problems or physical illness. Children have a right to grow up in a warm house where they feel safe, somewhere with enough room to play, study and spend time with family. The Change It! campaign wants to make sure all children have a place to live where they can grow up safe and healthy, in a real home.
