It's getting harder and harder to compile this thread, not because the cuts and closures aren't happening, but because the networks and agencies are determined to skulk away quietly. As with this story, sometimes you only find out via the back door:
"AGE Concern closed the doors of its Cleckheaton office for the final time this week. The office, in Bradford Road, was the headquarters of the charity in north Kirklees a few years ago, before Age Concern Kirklees went into liquidation in 2009.
It is being forced to move as the owner of the building wants to sell it and the charity cannot afford to purchase the property or rent space elsewhere. From Monday, the charity will use the Batley Resource Centre, where it already has office space and staff on hand.
This is the second service to be moved out of Cleckheaton in recent weeks, after the Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB) closed its town hall office last Friday." [30 March]
