star this property answer text <p>It’s important to note that a claimant will never be questioned about any such incident by a member of DWP staff. Part of the rationale for the third party model is that a claimant who has given birth to a child as a result of rape will, normally apply for an exception through engaging with an approved third party before attending the Jobcentre.</p><p> </p><p>If a work coach were to need expert support, they are trained to be aware of the specialist help available within their area to support vulnerable claimants.</p> more like this
