The Christmas 2018 meeting of the North West Mental Health Welfare Rights Advisers Group is here.

The next meeting of the North West Mental Health Welfare Rights Advisers Group will be on Friday the 30th of November 2018.

We meet at 9.30 for a 10am start.

Jane Hobson from Trafford Welfare Rights will be leading off a discussion on Universal Credit under full service fresh from talking to the Money Advice Group in Manchester on the same subject and refereeing a room full of GMWRAG members v Neil Couling.

The meeting is held in in the Community Room at Central Manchester Fire Station, Cassidy Close off Thompson Street, Manchester M4 5FP. It’s a short walk from Piccadilly and there is a car park on Thompson Street.

The Community room has its own entrance.  Please don’t enter the Fire Station by any other entrance.

From Cassidy Close you take the first left. Walk towards the building and then turn left again. You should now be at the back of the building. Walk towards a set of double doors under an overhang. The entrance to the Community Room is on the right just before you reach the double doors.

If you have any problems finding the room, you can call Helen Rogers on 07800 617 866.

As this will be our last meeting before Christmas, we’ll be going for lunch afterwards.

All are welcome to join us.

NB: The minutes of the last GMWRAG meeting remain in draft form as a number of very kind people have emailed in their own notes/recollections of the day (and indeed dodgy photographs) and we’re trying to incorporate these into the excellent minutes received from Trafford so we ensure we have covered all the bases. If anyone else has notes from the day which they’re happy to email in to gmwrag at Hotmail dot co dot uk this would be much appreciated.

GMWRAG running out of original ways to say…

… that the next meeting of the North West Mental Health Welfare Rights Advisers Group will take place on Friday the 25th of November 2016 at 9.30am for a 10:00am start. Their pages already told you this along with the fact it will be at the usual venue at Manchester Central Fire Station.

More details to follow nearer the time but as we’ve now managed to restore the Search functionality on the site you shouldn’t have much trouble finding out about the venue etc.

What their pages don’t tell you is that the speaker for the next meeting will be Stuart Erskine, Personal Budgeting Support Adviser at Stockport Council.  Stuart is on secondment to Stockport JobcentrePlus to work with Universal Credit claimants.
