Unite the union is protesting the government’s refusal to bail out the programme today, outside the Ministry of Justice.
Rachael Maskell, Unite national officer said: “We now understand the value that this government puts on charities and the most disadvantaged in our communities, they simply turn their back and walk away. They don’t care that many refugees and migrants will lose their vital support from professional advisers and will simply be returned to the countries they fled from as they came to seek safety in the UK.
“With the budget just days away, George Osborne could save this organisation. Government has a simple choice, they could walk away or show that they really value charities and will help them to play their role in the Big Society.
“The workforce who are more concerned for their clients than themselves will also be cast aside, adding nearly 350 more people to the unemployed list.”
