Universal Support and LCWRA

The Government has announced that 25,000 long-term sick and disabled people will be "helped" into work over the next year.

However, the press release is rather vague as to what this entitles. Will this include people who are LCWRA? If so, will this be mandatory or will people be able to decline the offer? Surely, if we are in the No Work Requirements group, then we can't be sanctioned for refusing to engage with this scheme.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts about this.
