Thinking of brand Mervelee Myers & the Case Studies!
I find this article interesting for a variety of reasons. Some day it will be made clear when I eventually clear my name. That’s why I have my https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site campaign to get the UK https://pettion.parliament.uk/help#standards to hold an inquiry into the Early Years sector, www.ofsted.gov.uk and the EYFS, Local Safeguarding Children Board and Local Educational Authority. That way I don’t have to face another miscarriages of justice after being part of Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12 recommended to Acas www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers.
That way the Employment Tribunal will think twice about posting online at https://www.gov.uk/…/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years…. Because the ET Judges who take 5 months to cut and paste the Respondent’s summary can complain about lack of resources, etc… and disregard the Equality Act 2010, Data Protection Act 1998, etc… Claim that Legal entity don’t discriminate, people do. But it is more than obvious who are the people that discriminate, the way how the ET Case was handled from start to finish. Now I am waiting on the Employment Appeal Tribunal, before taking my Mervelee Ratty Nembhard Fight4justice www.MerveleeConsultancy.uk at WordPress to the world stage with my writing.
I have my CPPDP and Intellectual Properties from my Case Studies from I worked with LEYF 1st September 2009 to 27th September 2015. And what have been going on in my life since I was forced to resign with a Nervous Breakdown. The role of www.voicetheunion.org.uk for education professionals, www.bwbllp.com Bates Wells & Braithwraite London, Department for Work and Pensions – DWP, and others that will be named in due course…

Call for ‘shared sites’ to bring young and old together
05 January 2018 by Meredith Jones Russell
A new report has called for the introduction of 500 intergenerational shared sites to unite young and old people and counter ‘age apartheid’.

According to think tank United for All Ages in its ‘Mixing Matters’ report published today (5 January 2018), urgent action is needed to create 500 shared sites across the country by 2022 to tackle growing social divides in ‘Brexit Britain’.
In the report’s analysis of recent research, it found that Britain is one of the most age segregated countries in the world, particularly for the oldest and youngest generations, and said this gap has widened over the last 50 years.
United for All Ages made three key recommendations for bringing older and younger people together:
Building multigenerational communities: supporting community businesses, making public spaces more accessible, opening community facilities to all ages, co-locating childcare and eldercare schemes
Mutual support through two-way relationships: online mentoring of younger people, advocacy for older people needing health and social care, ‘homeshare’ schemes where younger people live with older people, increased interaction between grandfathers and grandchildren
Better communication between generations: establishing a national council for all ages supported by an intergenerational convention, building bridges between generations using arts activities and street parties.
According to the think tank, shared sites such as housing schemes for the elderly co-located with nurseries should be prioritised in the fight to beat age segregation.
The ‘Mixing Matters’ report highlights the growth of shared sites in 2017, including the first ‘care-home nursery’ at Apples and Honey Nightingale in south west London, and mentions the significance of the Channel 4 programme ‘Old People’s Home for Four Year Olds’ in raising awareness of intergenerational projects.
Director of United for All Ages Stephen Burke said, ‘Brexit Britain is dogged by divisions – we are divided by class, income, race, geography and age. The mistrust that arises from such divisions is fuelled by the lack of connection between different generations. This can breed myths and stereotypes, misunderstanding, ageism and exclusion. That’s why we believe mixing matters.
‘The joy of mixing can unite Brexit Britain in these divided times. As surveys repeatedly show, older and younger generations have much more in common than some would have us believe. Now’s the time to make shared sites happen because mixing matters for everybody.’
