Angus Andrews, Level 1 Media student said: “The Freshers Fair has been fun, and it was interesting meeting and interacting with local organisations, such as the Metropolitan Police to find out more about the services and support they offer to young people. I had a great time speaking with them and getting to know about the career opportunities and pathways at The Met.”

Sulayman Uddin, Regional Community Fundraiser from Shelter - North London, said: “It has been incredible engaging with the local communities to give them a better understanding about UK housing rights and the opportunities available to gain support if needed. It has been a buzzing event today, managed well and students have shown great interest.”

Representative, Mandy Raymond, Signature care home, Head of Regional Resourcing said: “We are delighted to be at Southwark College today. We are a care home, and we provide volunteer opportunities from hospitality roles to becoming a carer. Today the exercise demonstration shown to the students is designed for them to walk in the shoes of someone with Dementia.
