Pantry co-operative

Posted 11 November 2016   |   By Nicola Poulter

Your Local Pantry will soon become a co-operative! This means that members and volunteers of the Pantry will have a greater say in how the Pantry operates.

Volunteers from across the Pantries are currently receiving training to become some of the first Your Local Pantry Committee members. This will see members' comments and suggestions being taken forward to formal Pantry meetings, discussed and action taken.

For more information, please contact us on 0161 474 4760 or email pantry@stockporthomes.org

Benni

I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
