Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I am interested in how JCP's manage their relationships with foodbanks.

Could I have a copy of the current versions of the Foodbank Signposting Service document, Foodbank Signposting Slip, Foodbank Signposting Slip Record Sheet and High Level Process (released in 2014 FOI ref 1381).

Baroness Buscombe in response to a Question by the Bishop of Oxford (HL3131, 13/11/2017), stated:

"The Department for Work and Pensions does not refer claimants to food banks, but provides operational instructions to Jobcentre colleagues detailing when it is appropriate to signpost claimants to food banks".

Can I have a copy of those operational instructions if they are additional to the documents requested above.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Morrison
