Thank you for helping, I have lost my job and have been running around like a headless chicken, I went to the job centre, I phoned their help line and they told me that you can’t apply over the phone anymore. I am not good at using a computer and I wouldn’t know where to start. I didn’t know what to do and then my friend sent me here. Thank you for sorting out my application for job seekers allowance.” Mr SA
