Now and then, I get feedback that is not only informative but is also entertaining.  Having added the opportunity to earn badges for completing our online courses in 2019, we expected that participants would appreciate demonstrating their achievement by displaying a digital credential on their social media pages.

Let’s end homelessness – hel...

On 11 May I am sleeping outside to raise funds to assist people who sleep out every night.  I don’t think it is right that we still have people who don’t have a safe place to sleep and I want to do something to change it. Please sponsor me by…
