2 weeks in a UK drugs service in April 2012

ACCESS Project to treatment and harm reduction for drug users in custody

"The ACCESS project opens opportunities for a number of individuals working with clients in the fields of drugs, health and criminal justice in a European Union country, to undertake a two-week work placement within a drugs service provider in the UK in spring 2012. 
Work placements will be designed to support practical transfer/exchange of knowledge, with host organisations in the UK providing the opportunity for individual professionals from other countries to operate as participant observers within services for drug users. This will include undertaking ‘shadow’ activities with experienced operational staff, taking part in clinical and management meetings and having the benefit of debrief meetings to discuss their experience with a mentor from the host organisation appointed to work with them for the duration of the placement. 
The placements are suitable for practitioners in the drugs and criminal justice field working in direct contact with clients (social workers, psychologists, drug workers, educators, NGOs staff ad similar) and will offer an opportunity to participants for practical exchanges of good practices and support a “learning from doing” approach."
