Please note message below from Jobcentre Plus regarding Barry Jobcentre. 

For customers receiving JSA, appointments and signing arrangements have been excused from 13 March until 20 March and payments will be automatically sent to customers. There is no expectation for these customers to attend for this period. In the meantime Barry staff have been posted at local Jobcentres and are contacting customers by, text, phone and writing to make arrangements for after 20 March. From 20 March majority of JSA customers will be expected to sign at Charles St Jobcentre for this temporary period. Our priority is to minimise negative impact on customers, Charles St was selected as a short term measure as feedback shows Barry customers more likely to have easy transport links to Central Cardiff.

Customers making new claims to JSA will generally be booked into Charles St Jobcentre or Penarth Jobcentre in some cases.

Any customers travelling to Penarth and Cardiff will be reimbursed for travel at public transport rate. When customers attend Charles St or Penarth for their initial visit they’ll be offered a travel card for Cardiff Bus as a means to travel for future signing / appointments.

For customers handing in Fit notes and making applications for hardship can ring contact number 02920423132. They’ll be making an appointment to see a JCP member of staff at Barry Civic office.

We’re operating a diary system to avoid to large numbers of people attending The Civic. Although they’ll be a couple of JC staff at the civic, they’re currently without I.T. therefore no point in customers being signposted across as the service will be extremely limited. We’re hoping the lack of I.T. will be rectified very soon. We’re trying to do everything we can as quickly as possible to provide a face to face service to our vulnerable customers.

Many thanks
