Insight into the work of a Trust social worker has been published by The Guardian.
A ‘My Working Week’ diary from Benji McMahon, a qualified social worker with the Trust’s Luton services, has been posted on its national news website.
Benji’s article outlines the responsibilities of a social worker, the challenges he can face and the reasons why he loves the job.
Benji is a Think Ahead participant.
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.
