Advice & Support Service

 

August 2017.......

 

Service News We are now a referral agent for the Foodbank based in Muswell Hill which extends the amount of assistance we can provide for people in times of financial hardship.

Universal Credit has rolled out nationally from July so we are waiting to see how this might affect clients and what the standards will be relating to this benefit. We are currently awaiting some updates from the Department of Work and Pensions.

The Advice & Support Service is still looking for a volunteer for the weekly food bag distribution project. If anyone is free to assist on a Wednesday between 12-2pm to sort out and bag up bags of food please get in touch. We also require a volunteer Mon-Wed from 4pm for about 30 minutes for the collection of food from Sainsburys, someone with a car would be ideal. If you can help can you please let Mary know via email on mary@irish-advice.com or by telephone on 020 8808 0454.

As Sainsburys' chosen Charity of the Year, the Irish Centre was recently presented with a cheque for £1000 for their Welfare Projects. Accepting the cheque on behalfe of the Centre is Teresa Intavarant, Advice & Support Service Manager and Moira Terrill, Haringey irish Pensioners Group.

 

From 7th November 2016 the benefit cap is reduced and is set at a different level depending on whether you live inside or outside London:

The benefit cap will impact significantly on client’s ability to manage, not least their ability to afford their rent. Each local authority should have a provision to assist people affected by this change.

Film Club

1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm

Tuesday, August 1st - The Others. A woman named Grace retires with her two children to a mansion on Jersey, towards the end of the Second World War, where she's waiting for her husband to come back from battle. The children have a disease which means they cannot be touched by direct sunlight without being hurt in some way. They will live alone there with oppressive, strange and almost religious rules, until she needs to hire a group of servants for them. Their arrival will accidentally begin to break the rules with unexpected consequences. 

Tuesday, August 15th - The Informer. Dublin, 1920. Gypo Nolan, strong but none too bright, has been ousted from the rebel organization and is starving. When he finds that his equally destitute sweetheart Katie has been reduced to prostitution, he succumbs to temptation and betrays his former comrade Frankie to the British authorities for a 20 pound reward. In the course of one gloomy, foggy night, guilt and retribution inexorably close in...

The Film Club is open to anyone who feels isolated or needing an outlet where they can socialise in a warm and welcoming environment. There is no cost to attend, no obligation to book in ahead you literally just turn up on your own or with some friends around 1:30pm on the day. Patricia and Christina, our fantastic volunteers, will be in attendance baking and serving lovely home baked scones and brown bread along with tea & coffee free of charge.
