There are two departments that deal with employment in the UK: the Home Office (HO) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The HO is in charge of considering applications to remain in the UK and issuing visas. Whereas the DWP deals with pensions and child maintenance.
The DWP also offers a number of subsidies and financial support to those unemployed and unable to work in the UK. Some of the help you can apply for includes the Jobseeker’s Allowance, Universal Credit, and the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).
