Opening Doors service provides a valued and successful free employment and advice service to hundreds of unemployed people.
Lewisham Council has identified that the closure of the service will have ‘a particularly negative impact upon those residents living in those localities with the worst employment deprivation and income deprivation’ in the borough.
In addition, the closure will impact negatively and disproportionately on Black and Ethnic Minority people, who make up 66% of Opening Doors service users.
Middlesbrough and the whole of Teesside face devastating cuts in jobs and services, which will affect workers and service users, shops and shoppers, schools and students, families, pensioners and claimants, and our communities across the board.
