    Hi there

    I’m Justine one of the moderators.  I’m sorry you are experiencing this at this time.  The benefit system can be difficult to understand at times.  To check out what your rights are you can speak to one of our trained helpline advisers.  They should be able to let you know what you are entitled too.  I hope that helps.

    Hi Beata,

    I understand your concern about benefits but as long as you fulfil your commitments that you’ve agreed with your workcoach at the job centre they will not stop your benefits.

    It’s incredibly frustrating to want to work and not find anything. However you are a survivor so you have the courage to get through anything and I’m absolutely sure that you will find something so don’t lose hope.

    Good luck
