Single parents and sanctions

At SPAN we have evidence of single parents being sanctioned for their caring responsibilities ie picking up their children from school and even for looking after their child when they are off school sick. We want to make Sanctions fair and appropriate.
 
Are you a single parent with a child aged 16 years or under on Jobseekers Allowance who has been sanctioned?  
If so we would really like to interview you about your experience.  
 
In return for 20 minutes of your time on the phone we can offer you a £20 High Street voucher.  We will not share your personal details.  
Our overall findings will go to a Government Review and we hope will help improve the way single parents are treated who are threatened with a sanction.  
 
If you are happy to be interviewed then please leave your details (including telephone number) with Laura Dewar - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  
 
Thank you for your help with this, we need to get our voices heard to make changes happen.
