RESPONDING TO WORKFARE
A meeting for voluntary sector workers and benefits claimants to develop a shared response to government plans to make ‘voluntary’ work compulsory.
London Coalition Against Poverty
Unite (Not for Profit Sector)
Date: Wednesday 9th February
Venue: Hackney City Farm, Goldsmith’s Row, E2
The government is currently planning an expanded, compulsory, workfare programme for benefit claimants.
We have serious concerns about the effect that these plans will have on benefit claimants, workers in the voluntary sector and the voluntary sector as a whole.
This meeting aims to provide an opportunity for claimants rights groups and representatives of the voluntary sector to work together to meet these challenges.
Please pass this invite onto claimants and voluntary sector workers.
