Job group closes af­ter cash cuts

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A SUP­PORT group for job­seek­ers in a North-east town is clos­ing its doors af­ter cuts in fund­ing.

El­gin-based Mo­ray New Fu­tures helped vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple find work.

But fund­ing for the group has been hit hard by pub­lic spend­ing cuts and it has been forced to tem­po­rar­ily close. The or­gan­i­sa­tion is now be­ing forced to look for other fund­ing – or to shut down for good.

Anne Ed­wards, a sup­port worker for the pro­ject, said: “It’s such a wrench to tell clients you can no longer sup­port them – they just look at you not know­ing what they face.”
