Name and Shame Report

Scope, Feb 2016

I am a volunteer here, as I`d been told they don`t use Workfare, but I`ve seen several people coming direct from jobcentre under threat of sanctions (one young lad was sanctioned & still told to return, he is now at Halfords for 2 months on workfare). We also have people sent here from jobcentre that are ill, one of which was previously sent to Acomb` Heart Foundation but was made to leave as insurance wouldn`t cover her. Another non-volunteer was also made to leave Scope to go to another charity shop to do the same for "learning experience" but they had no places spare, so she was forced to attend a park for six months courtesy of G4S.Scope may not be claiming to use Workfare, but it clearly is.
