Hi everybody :-D

 

 

I'm new to CAG as of today,and i just wondered if anybody could give me some advice

- or just tell me it's hormones that are making me irrational!

 

 

I'm reaching my 20th week of pregnancy and I am in receipt of JSA.

I usually attend fortnightly sign on appointments and I do all my job searches,check local paper,internet search,ask family and friends etc, to the letter.

 

 

I have no problem with that, it is my duty to do so as this is the deal, I look for work and the DWP help me out by not letting me starve.

 

I'm homeless and I'm having such difficulty finding somewhere its a joke,

I'm sofa surfing and its a massive pain in the buttox,especially with a bump.

 

Last week i was told I'd have to sign on every week.

The adviser ( I've never had a regular adviser,just randoms) told me its just something that happens every now and then, and gave me an appointment for this week.

 

 

I arrive at my appointment early, I'm never late, and this very uninterested told me I look like I'm having problems finding work, so I will have to come in everyday.

 

 

I wouldn't have a problem with this ,but for a 20 week pregnant woman, with a child off school, ante natal appointments ,looking for a place to live, does everything to find work,

 

 

I find this so :censored: infuriating.

Is there anything i can do?

They know my circumstances.

 

 

I've been on JSA since March, and no, I haven't managed to secure any work as yet,

but pregnancy waits for no woman and pretty soon no one will want to employ an elephant with flatulence :frown:

Suggest you speak to a local advice charity such as Citizens Advice. Speak to your local council re housing.

 

Although pregnancy is not an illness, you need to speak to a Doctor about your current circumstances. It is not healthy for you or your unborn child.


We could do with some help from you.

Are you a lone parent? Is your child under the age of 5 by any chance? You could get income support instead of JSA if this is the case (and you certainly can when you are within 11 weeks of your date of confinement) :)
