Thank you for your patience.
Redundancy happens when your job/role no longer required. you can’t be made redundant whilst your job still exists. Redundancy is only allowed if there’s no longer a need for the role to exist, and it certainly isn’t legal for you to be made redundant only for your job to be taken by someone else.
Even if your current role has been made redundant, your employer should offer you an alternative role within the business or organisation you work for.
From the given input, it seems you have a case of unfair redundancy, and would be deemed as constructive dismissal.
