Referrals to ActivePlus the Truro-based military motivation group have been being made directly from Exeter Jobcentre for some time.
Referrals made to my personal knowledge through Exeter Jobcentre staff. The courses take place at Belmont Chapel Hall, near to Exeter Jobcentre.
It is also my understanding, based on a conversation with an ex-participant from Cornwall , that referrals are made directly from a number of local jobcentres in the southwest.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Work and Pensions's handling of my FOI request 'Total Number Of JSA Claimants Referred to ActivePlus'.

I do not think it is constructive for the DWP to attempt to evade answering a simple question in this manner.
My question is this: How many people have been referred to ActivePlus, the Truro-based military motivation group?
I am personally aware of a number of direct referrals to ActivePlus made in Exeter Jobcentre through the staff. I can name two of those staff if you should so wish ?
The courses take place in the Belmont Chapel Hall, near to Exeter Jobcentre.
A full list of their courses is available on the ActivePlus website, including date and location.
They also take referrals from local jobcentres all around the southwest.
So avoiding the DWP semantics, when will I have an answer to my question ?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

Yours faithfully,

Jeff Smith
