    Clothing for Interview on JSA

    Clothing for Interview on JSA 26th Apr 10 at 8:13 PM
    I went to sign on today, and to see my personal advisor at the job center. Whilst I was there she set up an interview for me for Thursday.

    I have no clothes suitable to attend the interview in, and as you can imagine, with only JSA as my income, money is tight!

    I rang my Mum to talk about it and she mentioned that the Job Center can help with money towards clothes for interviews - and it reminded me of something I was told at the beginning of my claim which I briefly remember.

    I've googled to look for something about it, and have found that it is called the 'Advisor Discretionary Fund'. I have the phone number to call in the morning to see if I can get help towards costs. I'm worried that it is such short notice, as I only got the interview set up today, and it is on Thursday - giving me 2 days to buy clothes.

    Does anyone know how this ADF works, or what it entails?
