National Survivor User Network

In November this year, Professor Philip Alston, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for extreme poverty and human rights, will be visiting the UK to assess the current situation here.  (The Special Rapporteur is someone appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council to make such assessments.)

Because  many people with lived experience have been hard hit by austerity measures, NSUN is just about to send the Special Rapporteur a written submission about poverty issues facing us. (We have been invited to send written evidence ahead of the visit.)

If you have evidence which NSUN can use for its submission, please can you send it urgently to: Dorothy Gould at gould.dorothy@gmail.com

DEADLINE FOR SENDING MATERIAL TO DOROTHY: NEXT FRIDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER
