JCP approaches to volunteers in receipt of benefits

LVSC is gathering evidence on JCP approaches to volunteers in receipt of benefits in London. At present, some volunteers are asked to fill in a form “Volunteering when claiming benefits or National Insurance credits”.

Volunteering on benefits form

We are interested in finding out more about:

  • How widespread the use of this form is across London
  • How “reasonable” volunteering has been interpreted by JCP in the past
  • The extent to which volunteers have been put off volunteering by JCP

If you work with volunteers or people on benefits who have been affected by this issue, we would be grateful if you could get in touch with Deirdre (deirdre@lvsc.org.uk) or Nehal (nehal@lvsc.org.uk).
