Student Placement Project
Our student placement programme aims to work in partnership with selected academic centres to offer appropriate students a placement at OCD Action. During their time at the charity students will undertake training and be given all the supervision and advice they need to provide high quality support and information to people affected by OCD via our helpline and e-mail services. The project will enable OCD Action to respond to 17,640 more requests for support and information over 2 years, it will act as a model for similar support organisations, it will provide the evidence base for future funding and will ensure that future health and social care workers have an improved knowledge of the disorder. This two year project will costs £34,883 in year one and £45,450 in year two.
