Haringey has also been recognised for their outstanding ASYE program, which has seen several newly qualified social workers pass their ASYE and AMHP training shortly after with flying colours.

“I enjoy working in Haringey because it is a supportive place to be. When I qualified as a Social Worker three years ago; I immediately started my ASYE programme, then was supported to train as a Best Interest Assessor and Approved Mental Health Professional. Haringey values their employees and invested money and time so I can continuously develop my professional capabilities. Three years on with no plans to leave, the culture of Haringey is empowering, inspiring and exciting, placing the well-being of service users at the forefront of every decision made. Trust me you will not regret the decision to apply.”
