About me

As Social Work Placements Co-ordinator within the Student Services Department, Sarah works on linking undergraduate students to placements in the statutory and voluntary, independent and private sectors within the Bristol area and beyond (including Somerset, North Somerset and Gloucestershire).

Sarah initially joined UWE as Project Officer within the Faculty of Health & Applied Sciences in 2005, working on placements co-ordination with the academic team. Due to the success of the work, this was established as a permanent post in 2009. Sarah's role has included playing a major part in: placement development and relationship building; partnership working, equalities planning for students seeking a placement; the design and implementing of quality assurance processes; designing and overseeing financial systems and processes for paying placements and contributing to Managing Practice Learning Courses for practitioners.

Sarah's roots are in the voluntary sector. She went from working for a small local charity to a national organisation committed to addressing social inequalities by supporting people affected by imprisonment. Practical and emotional support was provided to prisoners' children and families, and to prisoners themselves (e.g. through a suicide prevention project). Sarah continues her involvement in the voluntary sector as a Trustee for Full Circle@ Docklands based in St Pauls, Bristol.
