  1. After a long absence from benefits I'll be starting a new claim for Universal Credit in the next few days. Just a brief history: I was on the old Work Programme with Ingeus for the full 2 years - towards the end I was placed on the ESA assessment phase having been on JSA only and didn't have to attend the office anymore... Shortly after I ended the claim to pursue a new opportunity and that's where I've been for over a year and a bit. Now having to go back to relying on benefits is a difficult thought and I have no idea what's changed. I have no clue if my local office is still open, I know most claims are now dealt with by phone only... I think that's right? I've heard DWP offices are closing down all over the country so what does this mean for a claimant and how do they check your doing all you can to find work? Can anyone fill me in on what's changed and what'll happen when I sign up... very nervous about it as I never actually thought I'd go back into the system... I was on antidepressants before and looking for job didn't help much with my mental health. Having not worried about work strictly speaking for over a year I am quite anxious regarding all these changes and what it could mean for my family.

  3. Am going to try and keep this as short as possible! i ordered a bike for my sons xmas gift from very and the delivery date was befroe the end of the month! I got a text saying the bike was in my garden, Having been dropped behind my 6ft gates and had been put out of site! I phoned very who said i could put it together and see if there was any damage or arrange a return and they would put a complaint in with the delivery company! My husband put the front wheel on and then went to put the handlebars on to find a chip in the paint next to the rubber hand grip! I phoned very and asked for a price reduction rather than having to send it back they offered me 75p, then £3.75 so i asked to return the bike where i was offered a further reduction but we just want to send the bike back! That was over a week ago i have since waited in 4 times for arranged collections and been on the phone every other day and emailed very to ask what is going on! I then get a rather aggressive phonecall from their bike deppartment telling me i cant return the bike as we had "put the bike together", i pointed out that we had phoned very and asked what our options were and at no point in any of the conversations or emails has anyone said it cant be sent back! I now have to phone them again as yesterdays collection didnt happen and i feel very anxious to the point i cant sleep! I feel like im getting nowhere and no one cares they just keep appologising and telling me to keep phoning and re-arranging a return
