Skill closed on 4th April 2011
It is with great sadness that Skill: National Bureau for Students with Disabilities announced that it has ceased operating. Following a period of financial difficulty, Skill's Board of Trustees decided that it was no longer viable to keep the charity open.
The Chair of Skills' Board of Trustees, Peter Little OBE said "This was sad day for all of us. We had recently appointed an outstanding new Chief Executive and agreed a clear strategy to reduce our costs and turn around our finances, but in the end time was against us".
Although Skill will not be returning in its previous form, Disability Alliance has been supported the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to fill part of the gap. The following services will be available from July 11th.
Please note that Disability Alliance has no trading link with Skill. Creditors should refer any claims to the insolvency practitioner Maidment Judd.
