A short post regarding my response from Age UK and their use of workfare; I shall leave you draw your own conclusions and would welcome your comments.
Dear Mrs M
Thank you for your email and for sharing this link with us.
As we have stated before, Age UK (including Age UK Training) is not involved with mandatory work schemes. Local Age UKs are independent charities in their own right and using such schemes would be their decision and not something we would have a position on.

I note that your website states that you DO NOT use workfare; however, I found this article which seems to contradict this. (See link below)
I would be interested to receive your comments
