New Directions for the over 50's

Damian hosted the second New Directions event at Alton College on Friday 26th October 2018, which brought together local employment, training and volunteering opportunities for the over 50's.

With more that 50 exhibitors and several hundred visitors attending this and the inaugural event in April 2017, the events gave people the opportunity to meet a wide range of organisations keen to put their skills to work. There was a series of talks and workshops running alongside the main exhibition.

A review of the event will follow soon.
