Social Work and Occupational Therapy Students volunteering at BHT’s First Base Day Centre, the Archway Project and Shore House, were recognised for  their contribution during Student Volunteering Week (20 to 26 February) by the Mayor of Brighton and Hove.

Students volunteering across BHT were thanked for their work when the Mayor of Brighton and Hove received them for tea in the Mayors Parlour.

Having students on placement not only helps them broaden their knowledge and experience, but their contribution and dedication to the essential work of BHT is invaluable. I am extremely grateful for what they bring to staff, clients and tenants of our services.

Nikki Homewood, Director of Services at BHT

Whilst at placement I work closely with clients building professional therapeutic relationships by co-keyworking, providing 1:1 support and interventions that promotes well-being and aids recovery.  The placement has offered me a range of opportunities to enhance my experience and skills.

Yasmin Warman, Student Volunteer at BHT

It is an honour to find out in detail what BHT does, and of the high quality knowledge and experience that students of Brighton offer.  Students make such a positive impact on what BHT delivers to the most vulnerable in the community.

Cllr Pete West, The Mayor of Brighton and Hove
