Hi

 

No I am afraid you cant as you are still employed - even if there are no work placement for you as you are still on the employment books for the agency with whom you bank for

You however might be due tax credits or income support so make a claim here

Tax credits https://www.gov.uk/claim-tax-credits

Income support https://www.gov.uk/income-support/how-to-claim

 

They will work out whether you are entitled to anything to top you up during this time

 

Thanks
