Hillcroft is a residential college in the further education sector which has a special dispensation from the Equal Opportunities Act so that it can offer places only to women. It is very special to me, and over the years I have tried to give something back so that other women can have their second chances. I ran a Friends organisation for a while and later served as a governor, taking the Chair for a couple of years. Now I am Member of College and keep up with what is going on, making occasional visits. It's always good to catch up with old friends there and meet new people who are always very passionate about the opportunities to open doors for women who would otherwise be stuck and unhappy.
This is the latest information I've received:
