AgeUK response to the use of Workfare Updated 14 July 2014

Quote
Are you formally involved in the mandatory welfare to work schemes?
Age UK, the national charity which includes our 453 shops, is not involved in the mandatory welfare to work scheme.
Why don't we force local Age UKs to end their use of the welfare to work scheme?
There are 169 local Age UKs across the country who are independent charities, united by a common brand, but autonomous in their day-to-day operations.
Local Age UKs are not 'branches' of Age UK, the national charity, but are independent local charities who are free to respond to the needs of their local communities as they think best.

I needed some help with gardening so contacted my county Age UK for recommendations.
They actually run their own gardening service so signed up as price was reasonable.
Talking with one of the gardeners I was horrified to find that they only got half of what I was paying and it was national minimum wage £6.31 per hour - I pay £12.50 per hour
