Changes since the last version of the guidance:
- updated to include reference to criminality and delay when considering permission to work applications
- improved guidance on applying for permission to work to provide clarity for claimants on what is expected
- updated information about the difference between working for a voluntary organisation and volunteering to make clearer that asylum seekers are able to volunteer
- new guidance template applied, and section and paragraph numbering removed in line with guidance requirements
The new section on volunteering is considerably clearer than the old version.
