A charity Scout Enterprises Ltd which was contracted to provide support work facilitators to people with disabilities including some who are visually impaired, is due to go in to liquidation and has made approximately 100 of its employees redundant with a number of weeks wages unpaid. We talk to a visually impaired worker and his facilitator about the situation and the options for resolving it.
