Students thoughts on placement at FCWA
“As a social work student at Fylde Coast Women’s Aid, I have been given a valuable opportunity to develop my skills further. After being welcomed into a supportive team and encouraged to build my confidence, I feel part of the service.
Working collaboratively with other agencies and professionals, my written work and theory research has begun to come alive. My knowledge of domestic abuse, the legal system and services has expanded, which will enhance my future practice.
Overall my placement experience has set the foundations to my future practice in social work. I will qualify into a work environment with the understanding of services and the knowledge of professional practice.”
