A council programme may get a new name as it changes its nature.
Members of Brighton and Hove City Council's Children, Young People and Skills committee agreed to change a business programme for disabled people to a rolling work experience scheme at a meeting yesterday.
Green and Conservative councillors joined forces to call for the programme replacing the Able and Willing business to have a new name.
Able and Willing was set up as a printing and embroidery business with financial support from the council to operate as a business while supporting disabled staff.
It is folding as the business overspent its budget by £17,000 this year and £52,000 last year although the council had cut the budget over many years.
Green councillor Alex Phillips asked the committee to agree to "regret the loss" of the textile business and for the new programme to take another name.
"We feel the new work placement programme should not inherit the Able and Willing name. It is a different venture," she said.
She was supported by Conservative councillor Vanessa Brown, while a member of the public called out: "You have all failed."
The outgoing committee chair, Labour councillor Daniel Chapman, said that he did not support the amendment and felt that it should be up to the people involved in the programme to rename the programme.
