Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. I know for a fact that there is 0% chance of a job from where they are sending me and I live in Cumbernauld which is in North Lanarkshire they are sending me to Banknock which is in Stirlingshire so it does not even help my local community or local businesses. Learndirect even say in the letter it will be with a local organisation but Cloybank Estate is not local to Cumbernauld.
  2. Have been sent MAN for placement despite not signing any forms at the induction interview.
  3. Causing no end of stress and feelings of depression with the threats of sanctions
