The Borough Council and its partners stand ready to offer support to any local Avro Energy employees after the Hinckley based business ceased trading yesterday.
Council Leader Stuart Bray said:
In these difficult times it is particularly disappointing to see the national energy crisis affect a Hinckley based business; I’m very concerned about the impact of this failure on people’s careers and livelihoods. We and our partners - the DWP, National Careers Service and Leicestershire Employment Hub - stand ready to help and advise those workers who are affected by this announcement.
Any former Avro employees seeking support are encouraged to contact the council on 01455 238141 or contact Customer Services
Meanwhile Ofgem, the energy regulator, is providing advice to Avro energy customers (ofgem.gov.uk) on their website.
