A trainee social worker and service user from Luton have shared the story of how they work together to promote the positive impact of the innovative Think Ahead programme.

Roderick – who experiences paranoid schizophrenia – and Benji, a Think Ahead participant who worked with him during a particularly stressful period of time, have had their experiences featured on the national Think Ahead website.

The Trust and the Think Ahead charity, together with the London Borough of Hackney & Luton Borough Council, are part of a programme to provide on-the-job training for graduates to become mental health social workers.

 

 The programme is recognized as one of the country’s most competitive graduate career options, with 23 applications for each place.
