We are only guessing on this, but it looks as if Boycott Workfare is not invited.

    • My thoughts exactly.

      Though we’ve been considering Sue Ryder (after Johnny’s post, which made my blood boil), as there is one of their Charity Shops in Ipswich (Just round the corner in Carr Street).

      We Make Millions From Forcing Sick and Disabled to Work Unpaid Boast Sue Ryder

      • I think that this would be a chance to hit the very heart of the Work Programme, really let them see how much damage workfare is actually doing to people on all benefits – really bring this home to these Private Providers.

  2. My goodness. The Parliament of The Foul.

    Big money to be made from the unemployed, the sick, and the disabled, eh? You bet!

    Actually, why bother to invite speakers at all? Who wants to listen to a load of tedious claptrap about ‘The Future of Welfare-to-Work’ or some such? All the organisers need do is wheel out a big see-through plastic bin full of money onto the podium from time to time and the delegates will applaud that. For the rest of the conference they can loll about and swap stories and get off their faces on Bolly, which is all they really want to do anyway.

    Even this won’t wipe the smug smiles from their faces, because they know the DWP will do everything it can to protect its contractors:


    But wait…didn’t I once read something about the DWP having a duty of care toward benefit claimants? Was that, at some point in the past, simply abandoned at the roadside, like an elderly and infirm relative that nobody wants to look after anymore?

  3. Meanwhile, the profits of ATOS increase while AT THE SAME TIME successful appeals also increase!

  4. The DWP don’t care about anyone, they just want everyone to do work placements for the “benefit of the community!” So working for Poundland (for nothing) is a benefit to community – I don’t think so! Next stop the ‘Work House’ Cameron & Co’s wet dream.

  5. I feel I should point out that Universal Credit is due to be introduced in the Lancashire area only as of April 2013 and this conference is going to be held in Manchester on 9th July to 10th July – Manchester is in the county of Lancashire – All I can say is GOD HELP THEM!

  6. BBC News – Welfare-to-work scheme ‘is failing’ Public Accounts Committee:

    Are you long-term unemployed?

    Have you taken part in the Work Programme? – If so, what was your experience of the scheme?
