DWP does not currently have a set timetable in place to reduce/remove the ability to send and receive fax messages.

However alternative, wider digital channels of communication will become available to customers & DWP colleagues that will naturally reduce the need to utilise faxes by viewing and sharing data information at source, under secure measures.
