Michael was a commercial tyre fitter until a back injury at work, and has received a referral for surgery. He received Employment and Support Allowance for a few months, but has now been deemed fit for work. However, when he applied for Jobseeker’s Allowance, he was told, because he still had sick notes, he wasn’t entitled to that either. Since then, he has relied on neighbours and says he doesn’t know where to turn for help. Michael says, “I have nothing coming in whatsoever. I have no food. A chap next door gave me £20 for my electricity. I am at a loss. I will have no money to pay my rent. If they don’t pay that I am going to become homeless.”
