Frequently Asked Questions
We always ask that if you feel Ucan may be of service to you or someone you know, that you contact us to arrange an initial visit. This can be done via our website enquiry form our email address firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01563 533000.
We are more than happy to show perspective candidates, their families and/ or supporters or social workers around the centre. These initial visits are a useful way of seeing what we do in practice and finding whether it is right for you. It also works as an opportunity for our member of staff to find out a little about you.
In many instances, however, whilst we would only offer a maximum of 3 training days we do offer trainees the chance of work experience which would be in addition to these training day; there is no charge for this experience, in fact we pay the trainees.
If you want to access Ucan but don’t have a social worker then you would need to pay for the service yourself.
Attending Ucan, however, is not just about qualifications it’s about so much more. It’s also about building confidence, social development, making friends and gaining the opportunity to be involved in real life and work experiences.
