[Important update about this site: http://refuted.org.uk/foi/august/]

Below are resources that confirm more broadly that it is not a requirement to sign any DWP Back to Work (BtW) and Help to Work (HtW) schemes forms, usually from DWP Providers/Contractors. You can also find related posts on specific schemes @ http://refuted.org.uk/category/donotsign/ and an archive of the #DoNotSign(dot)com website https://web.archive.org/web/20130501113339/http://www.donotsign.com/ It can also be worth combining this knowledge with the right to withdraw consent or not offer it.

FOI Watch: “There is no mandatory requirement for individuals to sign specific forms when participating in Back to Work (BtW) schemes, including Help to Work (HtW) ” https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/sign_here_or_face_benefit_sancti#incoming-597125
