Volunteering and benefits (National Council for Voluntary Organisations)

If you are receiving state benefits you are still allowed to volunteer.

However, there are some rules that you need to be aware of to make sure that your volunteering doesn’t have an impact on the benefits you receive.

This guidance aims to help you start volunteering by giving an overview of what you need to know and providing some answers to some of the questions you may have before you start volunteering.
