February 2017 Home Visits for Disabled Claimants

12/02/2017

The DWP will extend its home visiting service to all disabled claimants who ask for it, according to Minister for Welfare Delivery Caroline Nokes.

In a House of Commons debate about the proposed closure of Jobcentre Plus offices, Ms Nokes said -

 

The DWP has a home visiting service which we can extend to all disabled claimants who ask for it when their circumstances make it difficult for them to go to a jobcentre. We want our work coaches to provide tailored support for each of their claimants, to have a relationship with them, and to understand their specific needs.

Where claimants are required to sign on more frequently than fortnightly we will look to reimburse costs
