On the eve of the third anniversary of the closure of SSI at Redcar the SSI Task Force met to review progress and agree the next steps in their plans to create a positive lasting legacy for the local community.
Of the original £53 million of Government funding delegated to the Task Force over £49 million has now been committed.
This has been spent on training to help former workers find new jobs, advice and financial support for those wanting to set up a new business, and the creation of new jobs by helping existing Tees Valley businesses to grow.
