A worrying trend in Brent

I have come across a worrying fact through the Partnersip and Place Overview and Scrutiny Committee, of which I am a member. Since January 2009, the amount of women seeking JobSeeker’s Allowance (JSA) in Brent has doubled.

More work needs to be done to help people find sustainable employment. For this, we need investment and to encourage economic growth. Not slash and burn and risk the economic recovery by trying to cut the deficit to fast.
