Personal and Life Skills Development

We deliver a variety of services which equip disabled people with the necessary skills and knowledge that will ensure they are empowered to manage health conditions and live life to its full potential.

Learn My Way

Learn my Way is a 6 week rolling programme which supports disabled people who have little or no IT-literacy to get online and begin to access services and information for themselves. DRC staff support clients to register and work through online units of the Learn My Way course.

Money Matters

This accredited Level One course supports disabled people and those with long term health conditions to manage their own finances and gain IT skills to help them to improve their personal budgeting skills. The course runs for 15 weeks, one day per week and it is currently being delivered in various outreach locations across the West Midlands.

Safe and Sound

Safe and Sound is DRC’s pioneering personal safety programme which provides disabled people with the skills and knowledge to support their independence and prevent avoidable harm. Topics featured on the course include:

  • Staying safe in the home, community, and online
  • Maintaining a healthy diet
  • How to avoid injury or illness
  • Recognising safeguarding
  • Bullying and disability hate crime awareness
