Event shows how to survive the winter

A FREE event offering help and advice about keeping warm and staying healthy during the winter is being held at St George's Hall.  The Winter Survival Community Event takes place on Wednesday, 12 November 2014, (10am to 2.30pm). It is part of a campaign aimed at reducing excess deaths during the winter months. The event will have 50 exhibitors, from a wide range of organisations, providing information and advice on a number of issues including:-

► Fuel Poverty

► Debt

► Energy efficiency

► Financial assistance

► Healthy living

► Keeping Active

► Social inclusion

There will be entertainment and demonstrations throughout the day including a guest appearance from radio celebrity Pete Price who will be to demonstrate some chair based keep fit activities.  Live music will be provided by the NW Charity singers and Reiki healing sessions by Ursui System. There will also be a free prize draw and a hot drink on arrival. Free bags of vegetables to make soup will also be handed out while stocks last.  The event will be opened by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Erica Kemp. She said:- "This event is very important in providing information and advice to help people keep warm and safe. Hundreds of people have attended in previous years and have found it extremely helpful.  It is a key part of the Winter Survival campaign which is aimed at cutting excessive winter deaths. Although we have seen the number of excess deaths in the coldest months reduced significantly in recent years there have still been more than 200 in recent years, So the chance to meet experts on a whole range of subjects to help you survive winter is one not to be missed."

1 in 4 workers in the North West earns less than living wage

THE annual living wage research report by KPMG, estimates that over 600,000 workers receive less than the living wage in the North West region, which is just under 1 in 4 workers (24%).  This is an increase from the same time last year when the figure was 1 in 5 or 21%. The new Living Wage rate will be announced, with an in-crease expected from the current rate of £7.65.  Commenting on the report, TUC Regional Secretary for the North West, Lynn Collins said:- "People go to work and expect to earn enough to live on. For those paid below the living wage, they are not getting a fair day's pay for an honest day's work. Low pay is blighting the lives of hundreds of thousands of families across the region. And the consequence is we have to spend on tax credits to subsidise low paying employers and we bring in less in tax.  The fact is there are employers out there across the North West who can afford to pay living wages, but aren't. It is now time for all responsible employers to commit to adopting this standard, which enables workers to earn just enough to be able to live a decent life.  We have the wrong kind of recovery with the wrong kind of jobs; we need to create far more living wage jobs, with decent hours and permanent contracts, something that we will continue to campaign for."  There are two events taking place next week that we are involved with to mark Living Wage Week, which run until 8 November 2014, following North West launch of the Living Wage rate, that took place on Monday, 3 November 2014, at the Chapman Building, University of Salford.
