Hi All

I had a client come to me today after putting in a new claim for ESA she was invited in for a work focussed interview and she has been asked to complete the attached.  She was actually quite upset about this form as felt she was being treated like a child.  Does anyone know the thinking behind this?

From the reference number on the form, I’d guess that it’s part of this initiative.

Can’t help but agree with the client that it is immensely patronising.
