Life Skills Programme

Welcome to the YMCA Life skills programme. This programme has been designed to help all young people living in our services to develop their independent living skills to be able to move on from supported housing to their own accommodations within the community. We will provide various resources such as worksheets, demonstration videos, quizzes and more to help you look at key areas in your life and give you the skills and knowledge you will need to build on what you may already know.

We will help you work on things such as bills and budgeting, setting up utilities, healthy eating plans, how to keep a clean home, being a good neighbour and more. The programme will also help you to build on your confidence to be able to tackle certain tasks on your own such as speaking to professionals, setting up appointments and finding training or employment opportunities.
