Hello Fellow Members,
As of the 30th March 2015, there are important changes regarding claiming ESA, which I've posted here;
Further to that this very helpful information mentioned by a fellow member Hedgerow about this Ipswich Advice Leaflet to declare your disabilities when claiming JSA may be of interest to you, link below;
NBCan be now found in ESA Campaign Resource Pack below
Using this template you can declare your disabilities, how it affects you & what reasonable adjustments you would need. This was originally written by Ipswich Citizen Advice Bureau (CAB) to alert Job Centre Plus of your disability when claiming Jobs Seeker's Allowance (JSA) to try to avoid what appeared to be unfair sanctions put onto disabled people.
Here's the story on the CAB blog regarding The 3 D's Campaign;
Within this blog you can download the ESA Campaign Resource Pack that has other helpful resources about Discrimination, Reasonable Adjustments plus templates you can use. One of which is the Ipswich template to declare your disabilities whether you are disabled and applying for JSA as a period of unemployment or whilst awaiting an ESA Mandatory Reconsideration decision.
Many Thanks to our member Hedgerow who alerted me to the Ipswich URL to the leaflet originally which has meant I have been able to find out more about this helpful form. This declaration I am sure will help many when claiming JSA so I wanted to say how much I appreciated the information.
Big Thanks to Ipswich CAB & Hedgerow!
