Good morning.

Please can someone help me?

I tried sending a message to my work coach about me needing to give up my self-employment due to increasing decline in my health. Had no reply several times so contacted a different dept in journal.
Then had reply from Service Centre saying I don't have a work coach anymore.

I have been in LCWRA group for a year, didn't realise this!! 

I want to volunteer at a local church and give up my part time work as I am in constant pain from several health conditions. I don't want to get in trouble but can't get a reply from UC as to whether this is OK. 

I dont want to the wrong thing but can I give up my job then simply tell UC I've stopped working? 

Any thoughts/advice most welcome.

Thank you 😊

    Hi Poppy. My apologies for not being more clear. I meant I have been in the LCWRA group a year but didn't realise I no longer have a work coach.

    I realise now that it makes sense that I don't but I either didn't know, or I had completely forgotten!! I wondered why they didn't answer my messaged anymore!! Silly me.

    Yes I get the LCWRA element.

    Have just been doing a few hours a week self-employed.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I re-worded my previous post as I thought it was too long and people might not read it.

    Hi @Harmony93 thanks for explaining, do you feel as though you've been reassured now, or is there anything you're still unsure about?
