BXL Services, the Birmingham-based education and training charity for young people, has closed with the loss of all 26 jobs, its administrator has confirmed.

The charity, which last year had a turnover of £2m according to figures on the Charity Commission website, will no longer provide services to clients, said Tony Barrell, director of the west midlands team at PwC, the charity’s administrators.
