    They often send group messages to everyone in a certain group. I used to get job seeking ones even though I have LCWRA. They explained some staff just send to all as it's easier. 
    It says it is voluntary (which is should be with you having LCWRA). If you're not interested just ignore them <3

    I think it's all part of an 'initiative' by DWP to 'support people into work'. Make of that what you will.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi @calcotti,
    Thanks for your reply.

    A friend of mine received the same message, apparently, about a couple of weeks ago,he ignored it & got a phone call the week after,to ask if he was interested. They said they wouldn't normally contact him as he has LCWRA,but it's now all to do with the funding they've received!
