Young people claiming unemployment benefit in Barnet will be forced into unpaid work under a new pilot scheme.
All 18 to 24-year-olds who have worked for less than six months will have to complete 13 weeks of voluntary work in order to continue claiming Job Seekers´ Allowance (JSA).
Placements of 30 hours-a-week will be contracted to charities and voluntary organisations with the aim of providing work experience that benefits the local community.
London Mayor Boris Johnson and Employment Minister Chris Grayling yesterday announced the scheme, which will be piloted in 16 London boroughs, including Barnet.
