Very sad to hear of the closure of Barnabas Workshops in Ilford, after 17 years of helping over 3000 people into employment.  Sad at a great loss to local services and on a personal level too: our very first contract as a company in 2001 was to redesign the office space at Barnabas and run basic IT training for doctors new to the UK and we’ve been glad to stay in touch over the years. Their closure highlights the funding pressure many voluntary groups are under these days, at a time when we need them more than ever.

You did a great job guys, sorry to see you go.
