Work and Health Programme: Workfare Rules, All Provider Guidance, Specifications etc

Notes:  Chapter 5a Mandation, confirms the Work and Health Programme does include forced-labour workfare for sick and disabled people with “limited capability for work” under Section 55 of the Welfare Reform Act (2012). To quote:

“27. DWP has pre-approved a list of compliance conditions for providers to use. These compliance conditions are: …Agree a date for future attendance at an appointment/placement with a third party (i.e. college, work placement, skills training course)”

Chapter 8 – Compliance Doubt, concerning benefit sanctions says”

“Work placement (community benefit)
95. When a LTU participant is undertaking community benefit work placements they will have been mandated to do so using the normal mandation process. If they fail to take part in community benefit work placement you must take compliance doubt action. “

No manifesto for the June 8th 2017 general election includes a promise to repeal ‘work for your benefits’ forced-labour workfare.
