CCG chairman and CEO Alastair Wylie said: “The current uncertainty surrounding the UK economy is challenging for all businesses but CCG is doing as much as we can to prepare and mitigate any negative impacts to our business.

“Investment, particularly in skills replenishment, will continue and the importance of doing this from within communities – which includes apprenticeships as well as curriculum support and work placements – cannot be understated. It is crucial that we continue to invest in our young people.”
