Being a student at the Family Haven has been a wonderful learning experience. I have completed many placements during the course of my degree but this one by far has been the most beneficial. All of the staff were lovely and welcoming and made me feel a part of the team from the start.
My favourite part of the Family Haven is the amount of time and energy they put into supporting families and you can tell that they all love this. The families are truly at the heart of everything they do. The office is always open for the parents to come in for a chat and they know that the staff will give them all the time they need. I would definitely
recommend this setting to any family in need of some extra help and support.
This placement has strengthened my desire to be a family support worker. All of the office staff have given me multiple opportunities to support the families at the Haven, including planning and delivering my own parenting sessions. I cannot thank them enough for this opportunity, as it will really help me in the future. I will be highly recommending this setting to other students when I go back to University.
