Pirate FM has learnt Camborne's lifeline for vulnerable people will close at the end of March.

The Drop In and Share Centre has helped around 9, 000 individuals since setting up six years ago.

It has supported many back into employment.

Rev Mike Firbank from DISC tells us one success story: "Two keyworkers who are employed at the moment, both guys who were in prison for some serious offences, came out, volunteered for us, now work for us and are fantastic solid members of the community and are reformed characters.

"After six years of a really successful day centre supporting vulnerable people we've come to that financial cliff edge. We have tried extraordinarily hard both nationally and locally to continue to raise grants for our salaries. The difficult is there just isn't money out there anymore."
