Thursday 6th July 2017 – I Receive Response From “Access To Work” (re: JSA 3rd Claim)

This morning, I received a response from the DWP:

Quote:  [Good morning,

Thank you for your email.

Although I believe that you have been mislead about what Access To Work do.

We help employed or self employed people with disabilities and or long term conditions remain in the work place by providing a grant after completing a detailed application and having this looked into by an adviser who makes the final decision.

Unfortunately if it is not to do with helping you in the work place then we are unable to help.

My apologies.

Kind regards

Why is it called “Access To Work”, when they don’t help people to get help to get into work? 

They might only help people if they already have a job or are already self-employed!

I then forwarded this response to “AH” at Erdington Jobcentre.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to endure the stresses of dealing with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, due to health reasons, and being totally overwhelmed. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
