I attend a NHS day centre for people with Learning disabilities. Will I be forced to look for work?

in the future when I start to claim UC, I attend 4 days a week and get social services funding for this. Also will I have to sign a client commitment if I have a deputyship and lack capacity with my finances?

    You won't have to look for work because your ESA group will transfer over to UC.  I believe for income-related ESA nothing will happen about migrating to UC until 2028 anyway.

    I don't know about signing a claimant commitment but if you do have to, the only thing on it will literally be just to tell them about any changes of circumstances that will affect your benefits (such as a change of address, moving in with a partner, doing paid work, that kind of thing).
