Jimmy Stirling's DWP Diary: The pain of saying goodbye
In his latest diary update, 63-year-old Jimmy Stirling recounts a difficult few months
I AM Jimmy Stirling, a 63-year-old unemployed graphic designer, photographer and musician, single grandfather and social housing tenant living in Glasgow.
I receive Jobseeker's Allowance of £50 per week and have a very small pension payment of just under £25 per week. I do voluntary work for my neighbouring community.
For two years I have been keeping a diary of my experience in the UK welfare system.
