Now working part-time, volunteers part-time. Cares what happens to UK society full-time
On Twitter I call myself @imajsaclaimant, although some call me by the nickname Claimy. I remain anonymous because I live in a small town in a Tory/LibDem area and some of the views I share would not be welcome in the community I live in. Also, being a claimant I not only have to see DWP staff in the jobcentre I see them when shopping and in social situations. If I were ever to need their services again I would be in trouble.
I’m also working part-time and get some support for my housing. I campaign with Unite Community, Peoples Assembly and the local Trades Council. I volunteer my time helping people learn how to use the internet and share my experiences of the welfare system with people who have been sanctioned. I try to use common sense in a system that often doesn’t have any. I also tweet… a lot!
