Video: how does it feel to be homeless and sanctioned?

Sunday, 22 September 2013 - 4:34pm

In this short film, we talk to four clients of homelessness services about their experience of being sanctioned.


The Government claims that benefit sanctions (stopping someone's Jobseeker's Allowance for 1-36 months) give people an incentive to go out and find a job. But can that work for people who are trying to move on from homelessness and rebuild their lives?

We invited clients of homelessness services to share their experiences of being sanctioned.
