Stop the Closure of Batley Job Centre

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The Government are proposing to close Batley Job Centre and move its operations to Dewsbury Job Centre.

We, the undersigned, believe:

a) The proposal will affect thousands including the disabled and raises real questions about accessibility.

b) The proposal will force those who use the job centre to fork out money they cannot afford to travel further to job hunt.

c) That the job centre should remain an important part of the community, as close to people as possible.

d) That it is shameful the Government announced the closure without conducting an impact assessment.

e) That it affects seventy job centre staff.

We therefore think the Government should halt the plan to close this job centre which is in an area of real need.
