The SWEET Project is a Social Enterprise Not-for-Profit company and, although not a registered charity, delivers a huge amount of charitable work. The business was formed in 2010 to make a difference to people’s lives and not to make a profit.

We are the largest student unit in the country and, in the first eight years of business, The SWEET Project have provided placements to more than 1000 student social workers.

The SWEET Project is committed to ensuring the provision of quality placements which, in turn, produce qualified social workers of high quality. In this connection, we have been asked to advise government departments (the Department of Health and the Department for Education) to help shape the future of social work in this country.

The SWEET Project are proud to have received the awards listed on the right in recognition of their achievements.
