Man with chronic anxiety being constantly sanctioned

We were contacted about a man who suffers with chronic anxiety who has been kicked off Employment Support Allowance, forced into applying for Job Seekers instead, and is now moved again, this time on to Universal Credit.  However he is subject to sanctions by the DWP which can be for reasons as simple as being held up and arriving late to sign on for example.  He is now on his fourth benefit sanction, is desperate for food, but has used up all his entitlement to food bank vouchers.  He also cannot get another welfare emergency payment from his council for another 12 months.  He has another month to run on his latest benefit sanction, so we agreed to send across £100 to tide him over until his benefits can restart again.
