c) We will ring you if we require further clarification of your situation.
Legal status of Job Seeker Sanction Advice
It is important to be aware of our status – we are not a charity or an organisation, as defined in law, or by the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.
We are simply individuals who share our knowledge via the JSSA website and provide support and advice to job seekers who have received or wish to prevent a Jobseeker Allowance sanction.
We do not give advice beyond our area of expertise or competence.
Some of us work for Welfare Advice organisations.
We do not collect or process data and are exempt from registering with ICO.
We advise claimants not to share their personal data with us.
We have had a number of people over the past few weeks asking if they can donate financially.
Although we naturally respect and appreciate people’s desire to assist – we would suggest that if anyone wants to make any kind of contribution, they do so to organisations such as Cancer Research UK or Macmillan Cancer Support, the links are shown below.
Because statistically 1 in 3 of us will either contract Cancer in our lifetime, or know someone who has the disease, we would be happier if those organisations were helped rather than ourselves, or indeed any charitable organisation close to your own hearts.
Cancer Research UK
Macmillan Cancer Support
