Skills for Independence


"Attending the course has made a massive difference to my confidence and being able to get out and about in the real world.  All of the skills I learnt were invaluable and I am now living my life again."

What does it involve?
This course is about YOU, what skills would improve your independence? What do you want to learn? The aim of this course is to give you the confidence you need to lead a more independent and active life.

There will be a dedicated skills trainer per two participants who will be a similar level and ability to you. They will work out with you before the course what you want to achieve and give you some new ideas that you may not have thought of before. Over that weekend we will refine those skills whether it’s having a bath, using public transport or getting dressed.

This residential course will be held at Zinc Arts Centre, which is fully accessible.

"I had targets I wanted to achieve from the course, and with the guidance and help of the group leaders and trainers, I managed to achieve most of them or at least have the knowledge and confidence to practice them when I return home."
