G4S given job of community placements

29 April 2014 — National Coalition for Independent Action

skull and crossbonesG4S is the biggest winner of “Help to Work” contracts, the latest workfare programme which started yesterday. G4S is currently under investigation for fraud. As part of this contract G4S will seek placements in voluntary groups, which will be responsible for reporting claimants for benefit sanctions if they fail to comply with the placement.

Keep Volunteering Voluntary, a new campaign set up by – amongst others, NCIA – urges voluntary and community groups not to participate in these community placements. The arrival of G4S in this scene, will surely poison the reputation of any charity or voluntary group who agrees to sign up with them. Sign up instead at KVV, to show that you will not help this dreadful scheme work.
