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, not to make profits for shareholders.

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.

We are proud to have received a number of awards in recognition of our achievements.
