Hi I was wondering if you can volunteer while receiving LCWRA I have been diagnosed Bipolar 2 years ago I have eventually got LCWRA after a long battle I just dont want to jeopardise my claim . And also can I work part time without it affecting  my claim and how much can I earn .
Thanks in anticipation  of your answers.

    I believe both are possible, however I would expect the work you carry out either on a paid or voluntary basis can’t contradict the problems and issues you were assessed as having and experienced and which why you were awarded LCWRA.

    As Mark says, there on no restrictions on volunteering or working while treated as having LCWRA. If the type of volunteering/work contradicts the reasons you are treated as having LCWRA that might prompt a reassessment.

     Hi Tori_Scope it is a club that deals with issues that men/ boys with problems with mental health issues loneliness in need of company  etc I am there as a visitor just now but I have been asked to be a volunteer  as I have a lot if knowledge on mental health issues from personal circumstances  from myself and my mum I feel this would be very rewarding  and good to give something back.😁💪😁
