Save Shipley JobCentre
By Nicole G
There’s a new petition on the 38 Degrees website about road safety in the New Forest. It’s gathering lots of signatures, and you might be interested in it:
SAVE SHIPLEY JOBCENTRE
Campaign created by: Laura Jowett
To: The Department for Work and Pensions
What: Keep Shipley Jobcentre open.
Why is this important: Closing Shipley Jobcentre will impact on vulnerable local people and the local economy. Customers will be burdened with additional transport costs to access vital services, increasing poverty within the town. Closing the office will impact on the local economy as customers will be less likely to visit the town centre and spend money in local businesses.
