This week is National Voter Registration Drive (NVRD)
The annual nationwide campaign which looks to engage, inform and inspire communities to register to vote. During the week of 2 – 8 February 2015, a world-record breaking 441,500 people registered to vote! 

Find out more here: http://bitetheballot.co.uk/nvrd/ 

Make your voice heard - five good reasons to get on the electoral register.
• You’ll be able to vote in local and general elections – so politicians can represent your issues and not someone else’s
• Applications for loans, credit cards, mobile phones and mortgages are checked against it
• You’re not giving away information that isn’t already known about you
• It’s easy and quick to do it online
• It’s an offence not to be on the electoral register – although you can opt out of the version that’s open to the public
It’s easy to register online – visit the active link on our profile www.birmingham.gov.uk/register-to-vote

It’s ‘Time to Talk’ Day today!
Time to Change – an anti-stigma mental health campaign – wants to encourage as many people as possible to have a conversation about mental health and show that these conversations don’t need to be difficult. One in four of us will experience a mental health problem and 9 in 10 say they have faced negative treatment from others as a result. By choosing to be open about mental health, we are all part of a movement that’s breaking down mental health stigma and discrimination. 

• Keep the conversation going and visit www.time-to-change.org.uk for more information and resources.

Right to Rent - new rules for Landlords from Monday 1 February
From the first of February, all private landlords in England will have to carry out ‘right to rent’ checks on tenants for all new tenancies they grant. These checks will serve as part of the Government’s plan to crack down on those who are living in the country illegally, and landlords are warned that they could face a fine of £3000 if they are found to be letting property to people without the right to reside in England.

NHS Health check - have you had yours?
Almost 90,000 Brummies have attended a potentially life-saving health 'MOT' in the last three years as the city continues to lead the way on NHS Health Checks.

The take-up of the free checks to identify the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease, is higher in Birmingham than in most other parts of the country.

Figures for 2013 onwards show that Birmingham has out-performed the regional and national average for the checks, which are offered to people aged between 40 and 74 years.
• 63.66 per cent of eligible people in the city have been invited to attend for an NHS Health Check since 2013. This compares to 47.52 per cent nationally.
• An impressive 53.65 per cent of people accepted the offer of an NHS Health Check compared to 48.15 per cent nationally.

That means that 85,289 people across Birmingham have now attended an NHS Health Check to assess their risk of developing conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Everyone attending received lifestyle advice.

Find out how to book yours http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/nhs-health-check/Pages/NHS-Health-Check.aspx

Have your say on the West Midlands Combined Authority - a message from Councillor John Clancy  (Leader of Birmingham City Council)
As you may know we have been working with neighbouring councils over the last year to develop plans for closer co-operation between us on our shared goals. The government will shortly be formally considering whether it is appropriate and in the region’s best interests to establish a West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). Parliament will be asked to approve it so that it can be set up in the summer.

Ahead of this we are consulting on the ‘Scheme’ document which describes the role and functions of the proposed Combined Authority.  This consultation will run from 18 January 2016 to 8 February 2016..

There is a short survey and further information on the West Midlands Combined Authority website and we would welcome your feedback and any additional comments that you would like to make.

As Council Leader I believe that by working together with other authorities we have a tremendous opportunity to move powers from Whitehall to the West Midlands and our locally elected politicians who know this region best.

Please do take the time to have your say by visiting the front page of the WMCA website at:  www.westmidlandscombinedauthority.org.uk
