Gary has post-traumatic stress disorder after escaping a house fire. He was assessed as fit for work and moved off Employment and Support Allowance and onto Jobseeker’s. His JSA was sanctioned when he did not keep a full record of job applications. Gary says he has applied for over a dozen jobs. For Christmas, he visited a food bank and was given four tins of soup, a tin of spaghetti, a tin of macaroni, a selection box and six mince pies to see him through the festive period, but he has no electricity at home for cooking or heating, as he can’t afford it, and his rent has not been paid.
