GOLDEN Gates Housing Trust (GGHT) has created 20 new trainee jobs to help tackle local unemployment.

The successful recruits will get work experience and training with the housing trust and its partners including Warrington Public Health and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

And they are the third full year group to join GGHT after the board made a three year commitment to tackle unemployment in 2012.

During that time they have helped more than 220 tenants and family members into employment and aim to help 450 people in work by 2015.
