    You are the second in Support Group to report this type of situation on this forum recently.

    That's always a possibility whether you are doing any work or not.

    The assessors report is only a recomendation and the DM is also supposed to consider any other factors/evidence.

    No, they do recognise that people want to try and get back to some work - indeed that's what the politicians/DWP are always going on about.

    Which is why Permitted Work exists, and why Voluntary...

    They are judging if you are capable of doing any kind of work.

    It's 16 hours if you are getting paid (permitted work), but with unpaid voluntary work there seems to be no limit stated.

    Of course the hours worked would be considered at your next assessment.

    It can happen that you have an assessment without an ESA50.
