Skills For Life

Skills for Life was developed to enable people with learning disabilities and/or mental health needs to move from dependent lifestyles to a more independent way of living. We do this by providing access to community based training and offering day opportunities.

Our activities include Independent Living Skills which develop students existing skills and teach new skills to promote independence. We also provide Health Groups, including football sessions run by Wolverhampton Wanderers coaches and horticulture sessions at the nearby Old Tree Nursery. Finally, we have structured Social Groups where students build confidence, interact with other students and have fun!

Our trained and experience tutors and support workers lead the activities and are always on hand to offer friendly help and advice.

For more information, give us a call.
