February 2017 Home Visits for Disabled Claimants


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
