MP fights job losses at local unemployment charity

The MP for Exeter has expressed his concern over impending job losses at a local charity - one of whose roles is helping the unemployed.

 

Ten members of staff at the Exeter branch of Pathfinder have been told their jobs are at risk.

It's because there's going to be a six-month delay in receiving the funding from Europe which supports some of the charity's projects, including skills and training for employment.

Ben Bradshaw has written to the Local  Government Department and the Department for Work and Pensions asking them to intervene.
