The Croydon Opportunity and Fairness Commission is holding an open meeting with Sir John Hills CBE of London School of Economics
Prof. John Hills is a highly respected and celebrated social commentator and expert on the welfare system.
Croydon Opportunity and Fairness Commission is delighted to welcome him to Croydon College on Thursday 24th September, and encourages everyone with an interest in hearing from and speaking to Prof. Hills to join them.
Prof. Hills’ recent book Good Times, Bad Times, described by Times Higher Education as “an academic book for everyone”, examines today’s Britain and questions long-held opinions about who benefits from the welfare state.
Commission Chair and Bishop of Croydon the Rt Revd Jonathan Clark said this was a fantastic opportunity for the people of Croydon to discuss the challenges facing the borough with a leading expert in the field. He said:
“Whether you’re young or old, a student, a worker, a jobseeker or a pensioner, this is a great chance to hear from a renowned expert on our welfare system, and discuss with him what it means for our borough and our future.”
The meeting will be held at Room 330 in Croydon College from 6.30-8.00pm, on Thursday 24th September. Please enter the college via the main reception on College Road.
