Wrap said the redundancies were down to issues with funding

Sustainability group WRAP has announced it will be making 25 redundancies to make up for the “significant drop in income it has faced since 2015”.

In a statement published on its website, the not for profit organisation cited successive reductions in government funding and challenges in splitting its revenue streams as the reasons behind the cut backs.

Marcus Gover, chief executive of WRAP, said: “We are in an environment where there is continued pressure on public spending, as well as ongoing economic uncertainty, and WRAP is not immune to that.

“There is still a lot of important work to be done and there is a great opportunity to capitalise on the gathering momentum to tackle issues like food waste, recycling and reducing the impact of plastics on the environment.”
