Shirebrook Jobcentre Calling Support Group Claimants For Work Focused Interviews Under Threat Of Sanctioning

by samedifference1

Readers, my intention in sharing this Twitter thread is to try to find out whether this is happening at any other JobCentres. I don’t mean to worry or scare anyone. If you haven’t heard about it, that’s a good thing so please don’t worry!
Quick question @DWPgovuk – Is it mandatory for claimants in the Support Group of ESA to attend work-focused interviews?

@refuted Shirebrook Jobcentre are insisting that Support Group claimants now have to attend or be sanctioned. Nobody else has heard of this

Refuted seem to be suggesting that Shirebrook JobCentre are going against DWP guidelines, in which case they need to be named and shamed.
