Volunteering for those claiming welfare benefits

A  ‘Guide  to Volunteering’, aimed at people who are claiming welfare benefits in Wales, has been developed by Volunteering Wales and Jobcentre Plus, part of the Department of Work and Pensions.

This follows work by WCVA on building on the working relationships between local Job Centres and Volunteer Centres in North Wales, to develop understanding of  how volunteering can assist the development and progression of people who are seeking work.

See the article from WCVA, which has a link to the guide (pdf, 600KB), and also some case studies.
