Campaigners attend protest over plans to close Jobcentre in one of Sheffield’s most deprived areas 06/03/2017

“Tom Bishell, DWP branch secretary for PCS Sheffield, said: ‘We believe it should stay open. We think there is enough unemployment and enough reasons to need DWP services to continue to have a presence on that site.’

Mr Bishell said residents need a site that ‘serves their community, which is best based in their community’.”
