For the campaign, we are producing a report aimed at high-level policy makers with some key asks and recommendations. To enhance the report we’re looking to feature case studies of service users, successful back-to-work programmes and feature the expertise of advisors.
- Are you able to provide us with potential case studies for the report? We’d be looking for individuals who are under threat of sanctions and are willing to explain the impact it has on their mental health and whether it affects their relationship with their Jobcentre advisor etc. We may also ask them to speak to national and local media.
- Are you able to provide us with your own expertise on how conditionality and a benefits system involving sanctions impacts on people’s mental health?
- Do you run a successful back-to-work programme that isn’t based on sanctions?
We know that many of you are extremely busy, so we are grateful for any information or input that can help us with this. Hopefully together we can make a big difference for our service users and beneficiaries on this issue. We will also be looking to secure local media coverage.
