Got a possible job starting very soon down south.

Since I am not a profesional dolee, I would like to enquire if there is any thing I could claim?

Such as travelling expenses, just checked the price of a coach ticket 40!

I know that you can apply for a crisis loan but I basically want something that I do not have to pay back

Well there are things like the return to work credit which they give 40per week for 12months and there is another one you can claim for which a job grant 100 for single person and 250 for single parent helping get back to work, you can check the www.direct.gov.uk site or ask at your local JC

Thanks, will look into that now.

I seem to remember that if you had to go for an interview over twenty five miles away then they would pay for that.

Should get a call about job tomorrow morning, then start monday.

Just trying to scrape money together, its hell living on pot noodles and mars bars till first pay day

The interview payment has now ended except for certain circumstances.

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/Jobseekers/programmesandservices/DG_173631

If you go in and ask nicely they can sometimes help, and other times you feel like your time would be better spent yodelling. smile

The job centre has been split into two sections in the way that it works,
You have the office where you sign on . but for all the money matters you have to discuss it over the phone ( must of had too many threats)

Looked at the credits and grants but not been on the dole long enough. still I shall ask tomorrow

When I was last in job centre i asked about help etc.

They will pay for travel expenses for travel to a job interview only

Now I do believe it has to be a minimum of 25 miles away - might of changed by now
