So, govb will pay expenses upfront first then otherwise how the hell do they think someone could get to a location say 3 times a week.

There is always an issue with JC when it comes to reclaiming expenses. :evil:

I found this interesting from the website link regarding Universal Credit:

Some members have mentioned that if they are volunteering, they have been told that they still have to do the 35 hour job search. According to this, they don`t. The hours you spend volunteering should be deducted from the time you spend job hunting.
