Using Jobcentre Plus 'moving to work' schemes



This factsheet is mainly for single parents who are receiving jobseeker’s allowance or employment and support allowance in the work-related activity group. Jobcentre Plus runs schemes to help people who are unemployed  move into work. If you’re claiming jobseeker’s allowance or employment and support allowance in the work-related activity group, you might have to join a scheme. The table on page four shows who can join the schemes, and whether they are compulsory or voluntary. Page five has a checklist of things to think about when starting work.

If you are a foster parent, full-time carer, pregnant, or thinking of working fewer than 16 hours a week the rules are different – call our helpline free on 0808 802 0925.
