Volunteer recruitment

We are now recruiting volunteers to join our welfare benefits advice team. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about how social security law works

Our welfare benefits volunteers receive broad-based training providing an overview of the welfare system so they can effectively triage welfare benefits cases as they come into the service. They also receive in-depth training covering the legal tests for the main disability benefit Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

You will be using the regulations and case law to help clients get the PIP awards they are entitled to the first time round, but you will also be working in such a way as to give your clients the best chances of success if they need to appeal. In those cases, there will also be opportunities to develop written and oral advocacy skills through mandatory reconsiderations and appeals to the First-Tier Tribunal

We are taking applications now for our September intake of volunteers
