star this property answer text <p>The Department recognises the extremely valuable work of civil society in supporting local communities. As the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Inquiry noted, the reasons why people use food banks can be complex and overlapping. Their use in this country can’t be attributed to a single cause.</p><p> </p><p>As promised the Department for Work and Pensions has done more to raise awareness of Short Term Benefit Advances for those in financial need at the start of a new benefit claim, including providing information on GOV.UK and posters and leaflets in Jobcentres. Guidance has also been updated and staff reminded of the process for considering STBA requests.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Jobcentre Plus offers a wide range of support to help claimants back into work. This includes specialist provision delivered through the Flexible Support Fund aimed at supporting vulnerable claimants with a mental health condition, learning difficulties or other disabilities. The Work Programme, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies and the Troubled Families Programme are also tailored to support families with children and people with mental health conditions.</p><p> </p><p>The decision to temporarily halt a claimant’s benefit payment is always thoroughly considered and is not something we do lightly. It is a consequence of a claimant not meeting their requirements in return for receiving the benefit without good reason. The requirements and consequences are clearly communicated with them throughout their claim and set out in their Claimant Commitment. There are a number of steps in the decision making process to ensure that our decisions are correct.<em> </em></p><p> </p><p>After being notified of the decision, claimants can apply for hardship payments<em>.</em> Vulnerable claimants can apply for hardship immediately and the majority of claims are approved.</p>
