Hi I  hope everyone is ok today!
If anyone can help.....
 I have just been moved to a support group in December. I received a text Saturday.... Saying I have a job centre app. Monday (that Monday)  could there be any cross wires as

I was initially put in an active work group. I had a previous active work group appointment in September, perhaps the two departments do not talk to each other properly....

Thank you kindly

    Hi,

    Those in the Support Group do not need to attend any appointments. The letter may have been sent before the decision was made to put you into the support group. Ring the number on the letter and tell them you've been placed into the support group.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
