If you are on benefits looking for work, local councils should be allowed to make you work for them 2 days per week in return for benefits. For example in my local area, there is plenty of work such as litterpicking etc that could be done ( obviously taking into account people's ability for such physical work). Our local councils countryside service is always asking for volunteers.

Why is this idea important?

This would hopefully reduce the costs to the local council, as they would get jobs done for less money, as well as give the unemployed a work ethic, and chance to get out and about.
