Welcome to Kilburn Unemployed Workers!

Welcome to Kilburn Unemployed Workers.

We are a group for and by Unemployed People and Benefits Claimants in Kilburn.

We believe that everyone deserves to have our claims decided quickly and fairly, to be treated with respect and to have enough money to live on.

Everyone deserves satisfying work, dignity and a future for their children.

Often it can feel like we are on our own, battling a huge and faceless machine. It doesn't have to be like this. We believe that together we are strong. We can defend each other and assert our rights.

Kilburn Unemployed Workers Group is only as strong as our members. We need everyones help to write letters, to support each other at Jobcentre interviews, to challenge unfair decisions and to win victories.

Kilburn Unemployed Workers is only young but we have big plans. We are currently leafletting Kilburn Jobcentre to make our presence known. We are also arranging training to arm ourselves with the skills we will need in the battles to come.

If you have some time to spare and would like to learn new skils and help other people or if you are having problems and need the support of others then we want to hear from you.

We meet every Thursday at the Kingsgate Community Centre, 107 Kingsgate Road, Kilburn and everyone is welcome. Or you can telephone, email or join us on facebook.
