Student Placement Programme 

We have the privilage of working with young men and women who have been through tough times in their personal life,Student placement

that has interupted their education and social development.  They have very little self-confidence or hope for the future.  We take self-referrals, referrals from the job centre and from other agencies.


The students gain hands on experience of care for the elderly by volunteering in the Day Centre and involving one to one with the dementia friendly activities we offer.  They also have the opportunity to gain basic qualifications in Food Hygiene, First Aid, Safe Guarding Vulnerable Adults, Moving and Handling and ICST (individual cognitive stimulation therapy)

We have seen significant changes in the students as they respond to the positive environment and begin to flourish.  Since the scheme began we have seen 7 people access employment.
