Two new temporary job centres will be launched on Teesside to help those who've been made unemployed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Across Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar and Cleveland there were 53,806 Universal Credit claimants, up to February 11.

That is up by 987 on the previous month.

While a large number of those on Universal Credit are still in employment, around a third across most areas, there's been a significant jump in the number of people losing their job due to the effects of lockdown - which is expected to get worse when the Government-backed furlough scheme comes to an end.

More work coaches are being recruited by the Department for Work and Pensions to deal with the increased numbers of people needing help, and now it's been announced two new temporary job centres will be located on Teesside.

One will be at The Dundas Shopping Centre in Middlesbrough and the other at Dunedin House in Stockton.

 

A 28-year-old man has been charged with two courts of theft and breach of a criminal behaviour order.

The man was charged after he allegedly entered Lodge Filling Station in Eston on 19th March and reportedly stole £45 worth of food. 

He appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday.

 

Redcar and Cleveland residents enjoying where they live within the borough are being urged to stay safe and continue to follow the Government guidelines as the weather forecast improves in the run-up to the Easter weekend and Covid restrictions ease.

More people are expected to take advantage of the new guidelines as Government advice changes from ‘stay home’ to ‘stay local’.

Covid Ambassadors will continue to be on hand in the borough to offer advice to both businesses and residents.
