Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. Night shift placement, 40 hours a week. Although have pulled out they are using Commuity Work Placement wardens in their Finsbury store. Phone number: 01752 222748
  2. It was a Marks & Start scheme, I was advised to go on it by Remploy. I was told if I passed it would lead to a job. I passed it but – surprise, surprise – I'm still waiting for a paid job to come out of it.
