The Select Committee into benefits sanctions is seeking written submissions from claimants who have been affected by sanctions, especially people on ESA or who are on JSA but are affected by disability or illness. The form and details for sending in evidence is here (click on this news item to find link), so please use it if you can, and spread the word to anyone you know.
It would also be great if people could email us (Hands Off Our Homes) at the email address below, and tell us their sanctions stories. We’ll be doing lots of campaigning on this over the next few months, and it is a great help if we can gather evidence about how individuals are being affected. Of course we will not publicly identify anyone who tells us their story, or pass their details to any third party without their permission.
We’ll be in touch soon with more details of meetings, actions and events.
