King’s, Salvation Army London partner to bring counselling services to individuals impacted by trauma


King’s University College and the Salvation Army London Centre of Hope have partnered to bring new counselling services to the Salvation Army’s clientele. Six students from King’s Master of Social Work and Bachelor of Social Work programs will be at the centre on a weekly basis to provide support to individuals who have been impacted by traumas such as homelessness, substance use, and mental health challenges. Students are able to gain counselling experience while providing a support that is not typically offered in a shelter. “They’re very excited to be able to contribute to being part of a solution for our community,” said King’s School of Social Work co-ordinator of field educationMK Arundel. “But they’re also very excited for the learning that they are going to have.”
