Newly Released Report Shows People Going Hungry in Oxford
A damning new report from the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion (CESI) has found that Oxford residents on benefits are being forced to economise on the basics: food and household energy bills. Some even admitted that they "were skipping meals" to provide food for their children.
We can do better
Excess Winter Deaths: This is one of those astonishing headings. Every winter more people die than would be expected, about 250 in Oxfordshire alone. They die because they can't cope with the cold. They don't eat well enough or they lack heating. Britain has a bigger excess than Sweden because we have more people, especially older peple whose homes aren't well insulated or who can't afford sufficient heating or can't afford both food and heat. We don't solve the problems. We just know people will die, painfully and unnecessarily.

Join us on Saturday 28th March as we leaflet one of the key Oxford East wards. Our aim is to leaflet the whole constituency. That's about of about 40,000 houses - we can only do it with the leafleting power of you fantastic volunteers!
Rich Sleight will have set up a small Green stall on the corner of London Rd and Windmill Rd and will have all the leaflets with him ready for a surge of volunteers to meet him at either 10.30am for the first wave, or 2pm for the second wave. He will wait 30 minutes each time before setting off himself.
We really appreciate any time you can give, even if its just an hour, as the more volunteers we have, the more houses we can reach. Its that simple!
Please sign up below or simply turn up on the day - thanks!
