I spoke in the debate on the closures of JobCentres today. The closure of JobCentres is likely to have a negative impact on local communities in Scotland.
You can see my contribution below:
“In Glasgow, unemployment has consistently been higher than the national average, child poverty is rising, and the use of food banks has increased by 20% in the past two years. How can Ministers justify closing so many jobcentres, which provide vital support for people struggling to access the labour market?”
