Dealing with redundancy

by Sheila Stephen

Dealing with redundancy When Matthew was made redundant it didn’t quite seem like the ‘new challenge’ that his optimistic friends said it would be  – but it hadn’t happened to them! It felt more like a bereavement, a severing of all those ties, outlet for his skills and relationships with colleagues – and of course…
