Job Center Bullies
Please could somebody give me some advise. I write on behalf of my 60 year old sister who has just had her benefits changed to job seekers instead of EESA. Now she has to go to the job centre and be humiliated by staff that have no idea or interest in her learning difficulty which she has had since birth. Suddenly she has been told go get a job, no training no support. They have no idea of the trauma this is causing to her . She has suffered with bullies since school mocking her disabilities and now it seems its acceptable for the job centre to do so . Please as her brother I need to know her rights, over the years her social support has disappeared and now at 60 years old she is being told job search or no benefits .
