Hello

My name is Nuala Watt. I receive DLA and ESA. I live in Scotland. My partner and I are considering setting up a voluntary user-led organisation called Human Beings On Benefits. This organisation would provide emotional support to people across the benefit system, including a buddying service for those visiting JobCentres/WCA assessment centres etc. I know that there are several organisations who provide practical support and advocacy. So far as you know are there any organisations set up specifically to provide emotional support to benefit claimants? I have also posted this in Welfare Rights.


Thanks

Nuala
