Jobcentre Plus-South London District are consulting on the proposed closure of their Camberwell Green jobcentre, which currently serves approximately 7,605 Southwark residents claiming an out of work benefit.
The proposal is that these customers will be re-allocated to Peckham, Brixton andKenningtonPark(Oval) jobcentres, with JCP stating that this will have no impact on quality of service, nor does it represent a reduction of services.
Southwark Council is putting together an overall response, and would like your input.
Please send any initial reaction pointing to immediate issues and impacts to consider to: Amanda.Lloyd@southwark.gov.uk by Wednesday 3rd August.
Any more detailed comments for how JCP could or should maintain a local service in the event of jobcentre office closure can be sent to Amanda by Weds 10th Aug.
Please note that the Council response will draw on partners’ contributions, and will name those who have been consulted with, but will not act as a formal representation on behalf of partner organisations. To that end they would encourage partners to respond independently to JCP, to ensure their views are fully expressed.
