Petition End Job Centre Sanctions of Job Seekers Allowance
The job centre sanctions must end. Taking people's job seekers allowance off them means they cannot pay to live and pay there rent as there is a shortfall to pay rent in housing benefit allowance. This is putting people at risk of homelessness and suicide. The job centre are not informing people in writing, or even given warnings, they just sanction. The job seekers agreements are unrealistic to fulfil and not everyone has access to use computers for Universal job match everyday.
The sanctions must end.
