I have absolutely loved my placements. We were able to pick organisations in areas that we were passionate about and therefore really wanted to work with. I did a placement with a charity called HOPE. This organisation supported people in the community with mental health issues. I ran support groups and did home assessments. My current placement at St Anne’s in Leeds. I have been lucky enough to secure a part-time job as a Community Care Officer. Jenna Hunter, BSc (Hons) Public Health and Community Wellbeing
