Sanctions Survey

Citizens Advice Bureaux across the country have noticed increases in the number of benefits sanctions being given to people, and to the length and severity of sanctions.

We are carrying out this survey to find out the main reasons why people are sanctioned, and the effects the sanctions have on them. It should take you about five minutes to complete, although there are boxes for you to tell us extra information if you want to.

We also want to see whether the changes that are currently taking place to the benefit system mean that people are more likely to be sanctioned.

You do not have to give your name to fill in this survey, but if you would be willing for us to contact you for more information, please leave your email address at the end.
