‘STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS’ SESSIONS FOR CLAIMANTS IN SOUTHWARK

STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS – FLYER v.1

LONDON UNEMPLOYED STRATEGIES has been organising a series of ‘Stand Up For Your Rights’ sessions throughout December for claimants in Southwark.??????????

Topics covered included how to make the Claimant Commitment work for you, sanctions and how to avoid them, and the value of joining a claimants support group and/or trades union. The sessions were well-attended and lively, with claimants sharing their experiences and voicing their concerns about how the system is failing them. There were also some examples of good practice at the Jobcentre which we will try to extend and make more consistent.

LUS will continue these sessions in the new year, to build up a claimants support and action  group for the whole of Southwark. This is a practice we hope to extend throughout London, so that each borough has its own group.
