    • doesn't matter you've admitted about the DN and anyway where have you done that and to whom?   by assignment arrows are the creditor regardless to your acking of that fact or not.      
    • Just ignore the letter.   Block/bounce their emails or let them come through so you know what they're up to, and keep us posted.............   😎
    • Thanks DX,   I've already admitted that a default notice was served in 2010 by MBNA, so it seems I might be left hoping that they're unable to produce the original CCA.   I've never acknowledged Arrrow as the creditor and continue to pay MBNA.  Is that in my favour?   Cheers,   Richard.
    • For PCN's received through the post [ANPR camera capture]       please answer the following questions.       1 Date of the infringement  10/07/2019       2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date]  12/07/19      3 Date received  13/07/19      4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?/    Yes      5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event?  yes      6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal]  yes  Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up  yes      7 Who is the parking company?  Civil enforcement      8. Where exactly [carpark name and town]    10B QUEENS ROAD, CONSETT, DH8 0BH       For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. Yes    …………………..     This is what I sent to CE appeal in my own words   Reason For Appeal: Firstly I had an appointment at that time with the dentist. My last visit 2 years ago the car park was free and was not aware of the new parking system.   The sign at the front is very obscure especially turning right into the car park. Where I did park, the sign opposite was turned 90 degrees making it hard to see.   The door at the surgery was wedged open when I entered not realizing there was a sign relating to the new system . I cannot remember if there was any signs inside the surgery but once in I always pick up a magazine to read until the dentist is ready to see me.      My statement and evidence to POPLA. in response to CE evidence highlighting main arguments.   Par 18 . The image submitted from the Appellant of a sign slightly turned is still readable and is not obscured...….. Me Not from where I was parked. A photo from the bay shows a pole with the sign facing away.  Par 18 . Furthermore, it highlights that the Appellant was aware of the signage on the site and failed to comply with the terms and conditions regardless.......  Me I treat this paragraph with contempt. There is nothing to "highlight" here as I maintain I did not see any signage; Regardless ? I could have legally parked right outside the Surgery as there were spaces at the time but having "regard" for disabled and elderly, parked further away having to cross a busy road to the Surgery. Par 20....,. Furthermore, the Appellant failed to utilise the operator’s helpline phone number,,, (displayed at the bottom of signage) to report the occurrence, or to request advice on what further action could be taken.... Me How could I have done this ? I only realized there were signs there when the PCN arrived. Summary. I stand by statements and maintain that I did not see any signage entering or leaving the car park. The main sign at the entrance is too small and easily missed when you have to turn right though busy traffic and once through carefully avoid pedestrians, some walking their dogs. The main sign is blank at the back. When you leave the car park I would have noticed the private parking rules if the writing was on both sides. Roadworks signs close to the parking sign at the time did not help either. [see photo] CE evidence is flawed, illegal and contemptuous. Photos submitted are from months ago, Today I have driven into the car park and noticed the same signs turned 90 degrees including the one opposite my bay. CE have done nothing to rectify this disregarding my evidence and the maintenance of the car park. Showing number plates is a total disregard to patients privacy and I object to these photos being allowed as evidence on the grounds that they may be illegal.    POPLAS assessment and decision....unsuccessful   Assessor summary of operator case   The operator states that the appellant’s vehicle was parked on site without a permit. It has issued a parking charge notice (PCN) for £100 as a result. Assessor summary of your case   The appellant states that he parked on site to attend a dental appointment. He states that the terms of the site had changed since the last time he parked two years ago. He states that signage at the entrance to and throughout the site did not make the terms clear. The appellant has provided various photographs taken on and around the site. Assessor supporting rational for decision   The appellant accepts that he was the driver of the vehicle on the date in question. I will therefore consider his liability for the charge as the driver.   The operator has provided photographs of the appellant’s vehicle taken by its automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras. These photographs show the vehicle entering the site at 14:17 and leaving the site at 15:13. It is clear that the vehicle remained on site for a period of 56 minutes.   Both the appellant and operator have provided photographs of the signs installed on the site. The operator has also provided a site map showing where on site each sign is located.   Having reviewed all of the evidence, I am satisfied that signage at the entrance to the site clearly states: “Permit Holders Only … See car park signs for terms and conditions”.   Signs within the site itself clearly state: “DENTAL PRACTICE PERMIT HOLDERS ONLY … ALL PATIENTS AND VISITORS MUST REGISTER FOR A PERMIT AT THE PRACTICE RECEPTION ... IF YOU BREACH ANY OF THESE TERMS YOU WILL BE CHARGED £100.”   The signs make the terms of parking on the site clear, are placed in such a way that a motorist would see the signs when parking and are in line with the British Parking Association (BPA) Code of Practice.   The operator has provided evidence to show that a search for the appellant’s vehicle has been carried out against the list of vehicles for which a valid permit was held on the date in question. The appellant’s vehicle does not appear on this list.   The appellant states that he parked on site to attend a dental appointment . I accept that this may have been the case, however I do not accept that this entitled the appellant to park on site outside of the terms.   The appellant states that the terms of the site had changed since the last time he parked two years ago. The operator’s photographs of the signage on site are dated 27 March 2019.   It is clear based on these photographs that the terms had been in place for at least three months by the time the appellant parked, which I am satisfied was a reasonable period for any regular user of the site to adapt to any change to the terms.   The appellant states that signage at the entrance to and throughout the site did not make the terms clear. He has provided various photographs taken on and around the site.   As detailed above, I am satisfied based on the evidence as a whole that signage made the terms sufficiently clear. I am satisfied from the evidence that the terms of the site were made clear and that the appellant breached the terms by parking without registering for a permit.   I am therefore satisfied that the PCN was issued correctly and I must refuse this appeal.   docs1.pdf

I don't know if I am in the right forum here but here goes:

Does anyone know of any organisations for young job seekers that actually offer practical help (not just CV and applications) to any young person (not just disadvantaged young people) in getting work? I have been a little dismayed that while a young person I foster has had all sorts of practical help from various organisations from helping her with her CV to actually taking her to agencies to help her look for work, my son, because he has not been in care, is not disabled, does not have mental health problems and has not been in trouble with the police gets no help whatsoever! He appears to be disadvantaged by a good education, and a degree, a smart brain and an ambition to do a masters degree and he desperately wants a job so he can pay for it.

He has been unemployed for 18 months and has been seeing Ingeus for around a year but they do absolutely nothing to help him. The only help they offer is CV writing and job applications which he does not really need. They have told him there is not much they can do for him. He suffers from an extreme lack of confidence and social awkwardness and this is what he needs help with. They have never given him any work experience or interview practice. He was sent once about a year ago to go and interview for some work experience and it was in the bad weather, he made it through the ice and snow only to be told it was cancelled when he got there and he didn't hear any more about it.

He is 24 so should still just count as a young person but not for long!

I only know too well what you are going through, my young lad has just turned 20 years old this month and had not long sign on for job seekers, he has been studying AAT Accounting and has passed Level 2 & 3 in Accounting, so far he's had 3 appointment with the job centre already the adviser treated him like crap the poor boy came home and didn't know what hit him, I am taking matters in my own hands and do everything to get him off job seekers allowance, I am helping him looking for a job, I've even wrote his cv for him and send his cv to organisations and recruitment agencies, today already he's had three responses, we've look through those Universal Jobsearch there isn't anything that match to his job description.

 

Just together with your son do the best you can and keep trying you will get somewhere, if you know what your son want as a career. I directed my son to accounting since he started year 10 as myself I'm an Office Manager/Accountant by trade though I am off work sick through ill health at the moment but I am training him into accounting myself which I hope will help because I know from job centre he will not get anywhere.

 

If you need any advice please do not hesitate to ask for help I see what I can do to help him.

 

wishing your luck with his jobsearch.

Helen is probably right - the only help available for anyone not in a special group (and for a lot that are!) is whatever help you are able to give yourself.

Princes's Trust provide help and support for young people - Don't know what they have to offer as I'm too old to qualify.

 

I'd suggest contacting the university where he studied and see if they have a department offering support - My local Uni does, and I found their programmes to be of use.

 

You could also try contacting the local council and see if they have anything of value to offer.

my daughter got all the promises and hype but no help at all just a lot of pressure and veiled threats of possible sanctions, seetect were a waste of time and wouldn't pay her fares although they should have, whole thing was a not funny farce. in the end she signed off jsa and did some cleaning work, in houses, she put leaflets through doors and charged less than anyone around doing the same, she struggles weekly to provide for her and her son, but she gets by, just. there is no help just bull**** which is the usual from the government.

 

I think Mr.P has given good advice.

Your daughter sounds like a great person and mother you should both be proud to what she's managed to achieved, I can only guess it wasn't ant easy step to take to come off her jsa and just work for herself, job centre is just a waste of time they don't really care about finding work or whether people are working or not all they care about is stopping benefits altogether! I watched a video on youtube a whistle blower from dwp said that they didn't really care whether people working or not because they know there isn't any job out there the main thing is to get people off benefit, they sanction a young girl for going to an interview instead of signing on how ironic and stupid of dwp. He also said they sanctions people for next to nothing and they don't follow the rules when to sanction and by what purpose they just sanctions and hoping people don't apply back some people don't either.

 

My son wanted to stop his jsa but I put my foot down the boy has had a privileged life not by money but by having an easy life until now he's just found out how people can be nice one minute and turn against you the next, his adviser at the job centre was all smile at his last signing on until the one he went on monday he couldn't believe how she was different, he's been looking for jobs non stop and I've helped him too all it was because he didn't report the activities on the universal jobsearch website which of course she didn't even told him about, he took a list of all the jobs he'd applied but she was still very rude to him when he came home and told me, I went straight on the universal job search and report all activities showing 34 jobs he'd applied yesterday, I will keep an eye on him and make sure everyday he record his job search.

 

I'm also scrapping some money even if I have to eat just bread and water so he can have private training from a certified accountant on his premises who has guaranteed writing his cv and put him through his contact of other Accountancy firm for a job, I am keeping fingers crossed he'll found a job in two months time, the accountant seems genuine enough and have found jobs for other young people like my son, all I can do is pray things work that way. I will not rest until my boy get a permanent job away from the dwp.

My local council was absolutely useless there isn't anything out there no more the govt has cut £200 millions for supporting young people into further education or courses, now all you see are those private so call learning links like A4e, Ingeus and we all know about them. I am afraid people now have to do their own thing and look for job themselves going through the dwp or local authority is not an option.

Thanks for your comments, I think the Prince's Trust also focuses mainly on disadvantaged young people. My foster daughter did it and all the young people on it were care leavers, had mental health problems or had been in trouble with the law. My son has applied for 100s of jobs and gets nowhere. He has now applied to do some voluntary work, hoping to expand his experience a little and make him more employable. The trouble is the longer they are on JSA the harder it is to get someone to employ them. He was better off when he was just dealing with the job centre, they did at least try to get him some work experience, even though it didn't come off, since he has been with Ingeus he has had nothing.
