New DWP guidance on volunteering…
New guidance on volunteering for welfare benefits claimants was published today by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
This is a massive step forward, making it easier for people to volunteer, knowing where they stand.
The guidance answers the questions posed by the many experiences people have had over the last 6 years since the last detailed DWP guidance for all welfare benefit claimants was published in a single document.
It has been co-designed with people that have experience of claiming benefits and volunteering: to be clear, simple and concise.
We are very grateful for the chance to work with DWP Scotland over the last 14 months to facilitate the development of the guidance and to the many people and partner organisations that have contributed to the co-design process.
