Volunteering, benefits and tax

There is often confusion about whether volunteering affects an individual's State Benefit entitlement. You are required to inform Job Centre Plus about volunteering. As long as it does not exceed the actual expense incurred, claiming expenses should have no bearing on your payment. Volunteers are entitled to re-imbursement for their expenses. It is reimbursement rather than extra income, so would not usually need to be declared on a tax form. For further information see Volunteering and State Benefits at www.volunteering.org.uk

 

 

Appointment arrangements

No fuss 

When arranging appointments with clients, duty officers at the Neighbourcare office do the liaison work.

The duty officer contacts a volunteer on behalf of a client and arranges the driving job e.g.contact date and pick up time.

This information is relayed to the client together with the volunteer's first name for identification purposes.

The volunteer will be given details of the job and a job number.
