Dozens of jobs are under threat in Bodmin.

Staff at Rezolve are being consulted over redundancies.

The social enterprise runs a real nappy service and restores furniture and bikes for re-sale.

In a statement bosses blame the downturn and changes in government policy:

“For 15 years ReZolve has been contributing to a more sustainable Cornwall through innovative projects such as ReMaDe Kernow, RE:SOURCE and the Environmental Skills Network."

"Unfortunately, like many Third Sector organisations, ReZolve has been hit hard by a combination of the downturn in the economy, the impact of this on the retail sector and changes in Government contracting policy.  These pressures have led to the Board of Directors beginning redundancy consultation with all 24 members of staff whilst we fight to secure the organisation’s future."

"Whilst in a staff consultation phase we are unable to provide further media comment and would hope that we can be given the time to find a solution to ensure the valuable services and employment we offer to Cornish residents can be maintained.  We are keen to reassure our partners and customers that during this period we will be operating as normal and that RE:SOURCE  will remain open for business.”
