A WAY FORWARD: Benefits Sanctions

A Way Forward: Mitigating the Negative impact of the Current Sanction Regime

2nd September 2016, 10:30—12:30

The Jim Cooke Suite—Stockton Library

WHY: Sanctions are not working and questions have been raised in relation to their impact on peoples’ lives, the fairness and appropriateness of the need to administer a sanction, the lack of in-formation available to sanctioned claimants, the length of time sanctioned claimants wait for a hardship payment or reversal of a sanctioned decision and the variable evidence that questions the effectiveness of the sanction.
