Sessions are being organised by a charity to help hospitality industry employers get homeless people back into work.

Only A Pavement Away (OAPA) is running a series of half-day Round-Table events and OAPA founder Greg Mangham is encouraging anyone keen to attend to book now.

Aimed at hospitality industry employers, each session will explain how businesses can work with OAPA, covering the processes involved in employing either a homeless person, ex-offender or vulnerable veterans, and the support available to both employer and employee.


Greg said: "These sessions will take employers through the practicalities involved in employing a homeless person, such as how to advertise vacant positions on our jobs board and the support offered to the companies that partner with us and the people they employ through OAPA.

"We have a few places remaining at each location, so if you're planning to attend, please get in touch now."
