Voluntary work provides work experience.  Work experience is voluntary.

There is no evidence that mandatory work experience helps people into work.

Voluntary work is not a one off activity.  You can be mandated to attend an appointment to make enquiries about voluntary work.

Even  UC claimants cannot be mandated to participate in work experience only a work placement ,which must be managed by DWP. Most charities would need to have their insurance policies extended and they would receive no payment for being unpaid policemen/women for DWP.
