First Year Anniversary

Good morning to all at the Whitmore community centre in Phillip Street Hackney N1.

I am writing to tell everybody at Whitmore how much I enjoy coming on a Wednesday morning each week to use the Laptop and check my inbox so that I can send my e-mails to Family and Friends.

Also the people who came here are very nice and I also like to help new people when I can. I am sending my congratulations to the team that run this event.

Best wishes from Patricia

Suggest a one line invite to IT Workshop

I am hoping this will be a start to design a card to invite carers to register with Hackney!

What would you put on a card, to give to people you meet that YOU meet who are Carers, to encourage them to come to the workshop?


I would like to invite you,to come to the IT workshop, where I learn about how to use computers and phones myself.

On the Back would be:

Wednesday morning 10-1pm

Carers’ one off payments

“Carers are the bedrock” is the official slogan but should be changed to Carers are a pain in the neck as, from my experience, the system operators appear to be treating all Carers with a total disregard.

Since applying for an allowance in May this year, now five months later I am still waiting. If carers are entitled to an annual allowance,why should they have to be begging for it. Let’s all be grownups and act responsibly with dignity and respect to each other and send me the money.
