Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please send me a copy of the forms used to apply for Hardship payments for people with a benefit sanction and the guidance
given to staff and decisions makers to assess eligibility and copies of all of the standard letters issued throughout the process of applying for these payments, from initial application, being awarded payments, being denied payments and rights of appeal.

Together with copies of information that is given to people when they are notified their benefits have been sanctioned on how they can apply for hardship payments.

Yours faithfully,
Ian Wolf

Thank you, that was most helpful. Particularly the remarkably unavailable JSA10 Hardship form.
