Voluntary Action Scotland, the Department of Work and Pensions and the wider TSI network have been collaborating on making it easier for those who claim welfare benefits to volunteer.

dwp logoThis has produced a partnership agreement and guidance from the DWP on volunteering and benefits.

It is hoped that the partnership and guidance will help people know when they can volunteer and that it will not affect their benefits and at the same time make sure people don’t feel under pressure to volunteer.
