Third Party Escalation process for DWP benefits (not tax credits, carers allowance, housing benefit etc)

Source By: National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers (NAWRA)

‘DWP JCP Escalation Routeway’ or 'Third Party Escalation Process' for jobcentre benefits.
 
This is a two sided document which provides the process (i.e. list of JCP contacts names and numbers) for dealing with:

  • individual JCP benefit issues i.e. the ‘normal routes’
  • if the issue can’t be resolved i.e. ‘escalation’ “e.g. We are supporting Joe Bloggs who has not received his UC housing payments and is under threat of eviction, can you look into this so housing costs can be paid asap ?
  • For generic queries that may affect multiple claimants “e.g. Does somebody need to claim UCFS if they move into this area?”

 
They emphasise its for partner organisations/providers, so that should include all advice services.

So if you don’t know about it, here’s the list of the regional Partnership Managers https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dwp-partnerships who should put you in touch with the local Partnership Manager where you can ask to get on the list to receive it.
