Dementia affects about 800,000 people in the UK, usually to people over the age of 65. Dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease or a series of strokes.

If you share your home with a lodger, you need to know about new legislation which could see you being fined if your lodger is an illegal immigrant.

The Immigration Act 2014 means that, from 1 December, council tenants need to check that any new lodger has the right to be in the country. If they don’t have the right to be in the country you could be fined up to £3,000 by the Government.

If you are thinking of taking in a lodger, you will need to see evidence of their identity and citizenship, such as a passport or biometric residence permit. You’ll need to keep copies of these documents to show that you have made the check. (Children aged under 18 will not need to be checked.)

More information about The Immigration Act 2014 is available at GOV.UK and a helpline is also available on 0300 069 9799.

Our staff at the sensory garden project

Work is set to start this week on creating a sensory garden on a piece of land in Bradmore. Wolverhampton Homes – the company which manages more than 23,000 council houses on behalf of the council has secured a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund to deliver the project – with volunteers from its workforce pitching in to get the work done.

A campaign to raise awareness of fire safety in tower blocks in Wolverhampton has been declared a success by fire and housing chiefs in the city - as a new animated fire safety video was launched in the city.

A new booklet has been published telling the story of multi-storey council flats in Wolverhampton and the Black Country.
