Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. TCV send people to balsall heath forum for MWA in a regular basis.
  2. The job was dangerous. They made me work without safety boots for the first week and without a protective jacket. All day was hard labour 9-5pm. All day I either had to move wood or clean their place. Or they would send me with other people to places to clean houses and backgardens which they would get money for. They claim to be a community place but i didnt see them help anyone. I told them of my backpack pain and they just ignored it, they didnt care. Also another business these people had was to charge local people money to pick up their rubbish and then sell it at their place. we were the ones who had to go to pick up the rubbish and there were many hazards. The truck we went on had no seat belts....Just disgusting practice.
