The University of Kent invests £39,289 in companies who are complicit in Israeli Apartheid: HSBC, Barclays, Cisco Systems, G4S, BAE Systems and Booking.Com. G4S runs prisons that incarcerate Palestinians without trial, and torture Palestinian prisoners, including children. Booking.Com promotes tourism inside illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land, HSBC and Barclays finance companies like Caterpillar that help to ethnically 'cleanse' Palestinians from their land by demolishing their homes, Cisco and BAE Systems are complicit in the arms industry that kills Palestinians with impunity, and uses their technology to operate checkpoints and other structures of Israel's apartheid system.
It is not the size of the investment that counts, it's the principle. Every divestment from Israeli apartheid is a step towards the Palestinian people achieving human, national and civil rights, denied since Britain handed 'mandate' Palestine over to the occupiers.Read more
World-class care starts at home: Led by the care industry’s top conference and exhibitions; The Care Show and Health+Care, social care chiefs call upon government to realise the power of care with a significant investment injection into the system. As it stands today, adult social care services currently face a £3.5 billion funding gap by 2025, just to maintain existing standards of care.
Despite the eagerly awaited £20bn a year budget increase, NHS resources also remain overstretched. With greater funding, social care can create a dramatic release on healthcare system pressures and help keep people out of hospitals and managing conditions at home for a better quality of life and wellbeing.
Give the ‘unsung heroes’ of the care profession the resources required to deliver world class care to vulnerable adults in a home environment and alleviate the burgeoning pressures on NHS resources.
We respectfully ask HM government to make much larger annual increases in funding for our social care system to provide the efficient, properly staffed and well-equipped system that we all need and deserve. Together, we can realise the power of care!
