Working Links goes into administration

Working Links announced it had gone into administration on Friday. The privately owned company was acquired by Aurelius in 2016 and delivers services across the employability, learning and skills and justice sectors. Working Links delivered a variety of employment programmes funded through the Scottish Government and ESF but failed to gain a contract to deliver the Work & Health Programme.

Working Links was a member of BASE for a number of years and has kindly sponsored a series of awards. We wish all the best to staff who apparently received no notice of the company's demise.

DWP has written to customers affected and provided them with a dedicated contact number for them to ring for advice - the customer advice number is 0800 328 4193 and will be in use from Monday 18th February.

Members who have any concerns regarding payments due from Working Links are being advised by DWP to contact the appointed Administrator at Turpin Barker Armstrong, Allen House, 1 Westmead Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 4LA
