Having issues with the Job Centre?
On the Work Programme?
Had your benefits sanctioned?
Facing yet another interview for ESA?
Worried about workfare?
There have been a couple of meetings across south London recently about setting up a group where people claiming benefits can meet together to support each other and deal with benefit issues and problems we are facing together. We have taken inspiration from claimants groups such as Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty and London Coalition Against Poverty (see this leaflet from LCAP about how they run).
If you are sick of struggling alone with the benefit system, then come along and get involved!
Our first proper meet up will be Thursday 2nd May 12-2pm at Moorlands Community Centre on the Moorlands estate in Brixton – 50a Corry drive, SW9 8QT.
We will meet every Thursday at this time and place. (The second Thursday of each month will be dealing with housing issues with Housing Action Southwark and Lambeth.)
We look forward to seeing you soon!
