Voluntary Work, Did you Know?

Did you know that you can do voluntary work while receiving a jobseeker's payment?
Many people who receive either Jobseeker's Benefit or Jobseeker's Allowance are involved with community or voluntary groups.

Examples of voluntary work you can do while receiving a jobseeker's payment from Social Welfare include helping the sick, helping older people or people with a disability or assisting youth clubs, church groups, sports groups, cultural organisations or local resident associations.

To get involved in volunteering, you should request an application form VW1 from your Social Welfare Local Office.
