Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. “@asda in Walthamstow are offering work experience in Walthamstow, speak to your JCP adviser to get referred and gain some skills!”
  2. I was really excited to be able to maybe get work and a guaranteed interview. I was told i would not be doing any form of cleaning work.I just got a text telling me to go for cleaning training. Doing more research i found out a lot more about this.
  3. Asda are willing to take homeless people from charities, give them all work placements for free. Asda is worth billions why not give them real jobs with real wages, instead of using them as cheap labour
