A significant number of guests regularly browse this forum. This is very welcome and it is hoped that you find answers to questions that help with problems you might have.

What you may not know is that there are as many sections again on the forum that are only available to members. This could mean that you might be only a click away from finding some specific answer to a specific issue that has so far eluded you.

Registering as a member is easy and it is free.
You will then definitely have access to more information as well as help specific to you should you ask for it. Who knows, you may even be able to use your knowledge and experience to help others looking for help and answers.

I`ve noticed a lot of people `viewing` the forum over the past few weeks and it would be nice to see more merry members join the discussions and exchange chats and stories. I`m not sure there are many other `welfare` forums online? I know social media takes a big chunk of that so people with social media accounts will possibly satisfy their needs there, but we are not any kind of pro-active force, just a group of like-minded individuals who try to help in situations of despair.

You underestimate yourself. Along with many other regular contributors, some who have been in the vanguard of the fight here and elsewhere for years, you actively provide a source of information and assistance to those who seek or ask for it. Even being there as a shoulder to cry on or share a good old rant with may very well be a comfort to many thousands. What else is that if not a force for good?

With the roll out of Universal Credit gaining momentum many more will falter, many more will fail. Would you leave them in their torment, reaching out to no avail? Keep reminding yourself, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any condition be brought under. It is for truth, not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

There are hundreds more out there. Nothing we do is intended to harm them but may very well make the difference between life and death to many. Conversely, there is nothing they can do to harm us so long as truth prevails.

Most of these 'guests' especially in the numbers mentioned are likely to be search engine bots and not real people.
Toads - Philip Larkin
Why should I let the toad work, Squat on my life?
Can't I use my wit as a pitchfork And drive the brute off?
Six days of the week it soils,With its sickening poison -
Just for paying a few bills! That's out of proportion...

Not sure what bots are but I would not be too bothered if DWP staff read our posts. They might learn something, they are definitely not learning how to do their jobs anywhere else.
