Practice Partners

Mast of Social Work students are provided with two practice learning opportunities in contrasting settings, with different service user groups. The North East Social Work Alliance (NESWA) coordinates the provision of placements across statutory services for children, disabled and older adults, and people with mental health problems. We also benefit from partnerships with a wide range of voluntary and independent agencies working to support disabled adults, isolated older people, parents affected by child protection proceedings, refugees, people experiencing domestic violence, homelessness and substance mis/use.
