A Bodmin social enterprise fighting closure makes an urgent plea for help.

Rezolve is in talks with dozens of staff over redundancies.

It runs a real nappy service and restores furniture and electrical goods for re-use.

Bosses say it has been hit by the economic downturn and changes in government policy.

Chief Executive Jon Rolls says it would be a huge loss for Cornwall if it was to shut: "We offer a re-use service which sees household goods brought back to life and sold back to the community at affordable prices. That would go. There would be no centre like it left in Cornwall, certainly in the east of the county, but really across Cornwall".

John said that two training contracts were brought to an end after the coalition came to power, and new contracting policies are making it difficult to compete against larger national firms.

"There are a lot of charities being affected by this. We won't be the first and we certainly won't be the last, so we do really need to get to grips with that as Cornwall and work out how we're going to support the organisations that are providing a lot of the frontline services that are needed in these tough economic times".

Rezolve is talking to partners about saving the organisation, and insists it is still open to the public at the moment.
