Section 17 Forum

NELMA run a mutual support group for families who are seeking or receiving support by social services under Section 17. We aim to provide emotional support, solidarity, and to collectively resist the poor treatment of destitute families by local authorities. Please join us for a discussion of the challenges involved in being supported by social services and help us come up with ways to STOP councils (and central government) from treating families in need so badly.

The forum is only for families directly affected by these issues and is not an open meeting.

Please contact us to find out about future forums, or keep an eye on this page.
