We have been asked by the DWP to circulate news of their new Working Benefits campaign to the networks of organisations and individuals involved in Need NOT Greed. We welcome this ask as it highlights that the DWP recognise the reasons why people work without declaring; that eh transition off benefits and into work is a huge financial risk. However Working Benefits does not offer financially secure stepping stones into work and this is something we will continue to campaign for over the coming months

Working Benefits¬†explains how going back to work, doesn’t always mean you have to give up all benefits. Housing Benefit and Council Tax benefits are examples, where in many instances they can continue to be paid for people going back into work. The campaign also highlights what additional grants and support is available. You can find out more information on the DWP website
