Q: I receive State benefits. Will volunteering affect them?

No, your benefits should not be affected. It is recognised that volunteering can help you move into paid employment, or can enhance your wellbeing by keeping you active or improving your confidence.

It is important that you let your personal benefits adviser know about your volunteering and confirm that only out-of-pocket expenses are reimbursed. Although it is not appropriate for us to get involved in your personal circumstances, let us know if you encounter difficulties and we'll try to help.
