Fairness Commission Survey

The Dundee Fairness Commission would like to better understand how the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown have affected our community, specifically around the areas of: • Disabilities • Mental Health • Fuel Costs. They have created a short survey to better understand some of the main challenges people are currently facing, especially those on low incomes. Your responses will help the Fairness Commission as they start to look at each of the above areas in more depth over the next 6 months. All responses are anonymous.

Finally taking notice?

When the last Fairness Commission ended one of the recommendations was for the Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership to develop a 24/7 drop-in (self-referral) service in collaboration with beneficiaries and offering clinical, non-clinical, therapeutic and peer support for people struggling with their mental health. We were very excited to see the councillors taking on board our suggestions https://www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk/fp/video-city-councillors-back-24-hour-crisis-centre-for-dundee-following-incident-on-tay-bridge/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2TsMBIVHdx6YkrPI4osHQE6fj-SUKP8VS0QOkHV4oHay7UuVH6I2y4QkE

Speaking with Social Justice and Fairness Commission

At the start of July some of the current Fairness Commissioners and Dundee Fighting For Fairness met with John Alexander (Leader of the Council) and Shona Robinson (Dundee East MSP) from the Social Justice and Fairness Commission to discuss their plan to ‘Build Back Better’, which involves: o Secure Income for All o Homes and Communities for All o Health and Wellbeing We specifically wanted to talk to them about Secure Income For All - highlighting how Universal Credit is broken and is keeping people in poverty, and Health and Wellbeing and how Mental Health is now in deeper crisis point with the Coronavirus pandemic. We also had plenty to say about Homes and Communities for All.
