Today I heard the shocking news that since the welfare reform changes took place 74 suicides are taking place per week! Please if you know anyone that is vulnerable please direct them to the council services, advice centres etc, We dont want residents of Rochdale to become victims.
Although welfare reform advice is available from the Rochdale Council, Community Champions and other agencies, for quick reference the following link will put you in touch with a welfare reform expert. Also plenty of advice and guidance on the Bedroom Tax. The site is updated on a daily basis so any changes or advice etc will be first issued via the turn2us.org.uk site as and when it takes place.
Remember we don’t want any victims off the welfare reform to become a statistic in the Borough of Rochdale.
