Swedish Social Workers’ visit

We were pleased to welcome a group of Swedish Social Work students to our Dundee office on Tuesday 2 June. The students, who were on an exchange programme in Dundee were keen to visit our organisation as part of their familiarisation tour of Scotland.

TCA staff Holly and Theo were delighted to meet the group and represent our Young Persons Services and Adult Services.

Within the group were senior social workers, managers and team leaders of homeless units as well as drugs and alcohol workers led by Elaine from Dundee College.

During the visit, we talked to the group about the history of the TCA, our projects, our referral process and outreach work. We concluded our presentation with Holly showing a film by the Witches project, which they really loved.

The question and answer session was interesting as they all wanted to know more about TCA and they particularly liked the men and women only groups. However, they wondered why we did not have a group for secondary clients.

In appreciation for having them and sharing our experience with them, we were presented with a plaque, pictured below.
