    The support group equivalent of UC is Limited capability for work related activity (LCWRA) This is what you need to be given for you to be placed into the no work requirements group.

    If you're given LCW (WRAG equivalent) then you'll be placed into the work preparation group and will need to take reasonable steps to prepare for work in the future, this means attending appointments, work experience and work placements.
