This is the contact number for Sainsbury’s executive office. I have rang them and explained that I will not be using their stores again due to them colluding with the DWP to entrap people on benefits.
I explained that many like me have illness that on some days cannot be seen but on others makes us completely immobile.
Their collusion may cause folk to be sanctioned. In many cases this might result in benefits being suspended, however after evidence with the consultants would likely be reinstated. This just means life gets even more difficult and trying for these people, and often may result in malnutrition, loss of home, isolation or even suicide.
It is not up to any private company, including retailers to be complicit in working with a government that already is in breach of UN mandates in regard to their cruel and inhumane treatment of the most vulnerable in our society.
The person that took my call was lovely and seemed to understand my issue.
I urge all of you to contact them directly, so they may see the error of their disgusting actions.
There is no legal nor moral requirement for the supermarket chain to share information nor images with any government department beyond that which ensures the immediate safety and wellbeing of their customers.
As a disabled person it is already a mental and emotional challenge to get to the shops, without the physical issues, to now know I am likely being monitored will make things even harder and my life far more difficult.
Thanks for reading,
