Here for You, run by Berwick Community Trust, is starting a Redundancy Support Group for Jus-Rol staff.

The charity is part of the taskforce set up to help employees who are set to lose their jobs later this year.

The pastry factory is expected to close by the autumn with the loss of 265 jobs.

The support group will run on Tuesday mornings from 10am-12pm in the William Elder Building.

Project manager Becci Murray said: “It is an informal opportunity to meet up with colleagues, have a cuppa and a chat.

“We can also offer support with employment and job searching and can make appointments to attend our Monday, Thursday and Friday sessions for more formal support around CV writing, job applications, online benefit claims, Universal Jobmatch and job searching.

“We also offer budgeting sessions and some training opportunities.”
