Our Interface Partners, Volunteer Glasgow, are increasingly concerned about how the benefits system may be making it difficult for people to volunteer their time and skills for the benefit of our communities, and are working with the city’s Poverty Leadership Panel  to clarify the Department of Work and Pension’s guidance on this issue.

If you’ve had any problems with volunteering when you, or someone you know, has been claiming welfare benefits, they would like to hear from you.  The claimant’s name should remain anonymous.
