A message from VP Ed&Welfare 
Halloween is soon upon us – a great time of year to dress up and have fun and also a good opportunity to make sure your students are staying safe in their rented accommodation.

Carbon monoxide (CO) – or the ‘Silent Killer’ – affects more than 4,000 people every year and can be a consequence of unsafe and unchecked gas appliances. At Gas Safe Register, we’re committed to promoting key safety messages about the dangers of CO and providing advice on how to stay safe in your home.

So with this in mind and in keeping with the season, we’ve created a Halloween horror film trailer, which illustrates the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and encourages students to be on the lookout for the warning signs. The viewer follows a group of students as they come under the influence of the deadly ‘Silent Killer’, providing clues to the killer’s identity. The trailer also contains guidance for students on ensuring that their rented accommodation remains safe.

View the trailer here

By law, landlords must ensure that gas appliances fitted in rented properties are safe to use and checked annually. Badly fitted or poorly maintained appliances can cause leaks, fires and explosions as well as CO poisoning, so if you're a tenant knowing your rights could save your life.

Young People Matter Charity 

We are an award winning Charity that has had the life changing opportunity to win The People’s Millions lottery, we specialise in working with children and young people and we work very closely with the local community.  We work in a few Lambeth based primary schools running their breakfast clubs and after school clubs, we currently have 6 schools we are working with. We also currently have 5 half term holiday camp sites running which are based in Lambeth primary schools also. 


We are looking for play workers to come and join our team and get firsthand experience of working in this field. We are Ofsted registered and work very closely with the EYFS so we have set policies and procedures necessary to follow e.g. safeguarding, health and safety, data protection etc.


Our after school clubs run Mon-Fri term time between 2:45pm-6pm (depending on site) and our half term holiday camp run between 8am-6pm. We can offer support during the session from more experienced play workers, feedback and advice from team leaders and a reference if suitable. There are training opportunities with us also e.g. first aid, safeguarding, CYP courses, food hygiene etc so there is room to grow and improve


I will attach a link below so you can check out our website here you will find any additional information about us.

******** Interested in getting published? *********

For those interested in: Surgery / Nephrology / Anaesthetics / Academia / CV Building. OAKS-2 is a follow-up national audit of patients identified with post-operative acute kidney injury in the previous OAKS-1 audit.


The role of a collaborator is to ensure that the data is collected and will involve liaising with the hospital audit departments and supervising consultant.

Compared with OAKS-1 the data collection is less intensive with fewer data points, this is reflected in the need for fewer collaborators.
