“At the moment I’m doing my practice placement with Glow. I chose the organisation based on the services they provide to victims of domestic abuse. I’ve met with lots of service users and staff in the organisation. I’ve learnt a lot from the staff about domestic abuse and it really opens my eyes to what happens in an abusive relationship.
“I’ve had safeguarding training and I’m learning most from the senior members of staff. I believe that what I say, when talking to victims of domestic abuse survivors, does have an impact on their journey and their progress and recovery from abuse. I’ve completed the group programme and lead art therapy sessions for the customers. I received positive feedback from the art therapy class that I lead, and I was able to understand and see first hand how it impacted on their mental wellbeing.
“I have enjoyed the experience and I’ve been able to learn things and see them first hand. I’ve been working with the organisation for about 10 weeks now and it helps me to get invaluable experience.”
