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.

Digital Inclusion

We provide support to disabled people who have little or no IT-literacy to get online and begin to access services and information for themselves. Support is tailored to the needs of the indivual and can be delivered over the telephone or via video link.

We also can provide more advanced training to support disabled people to improve their online skills, including mastering social media, creating a CV, giving successful presentations, using Microsoft Office and Google Documents including Online Calendars and sending effective emails.

Safe and Sound

Safe and Sound is a series of workshops aimed at enhancing life skills and wellbeing of vulnerable adults with learning disabilities and long term health conditions. It is an eight week programme consisting of interactive workshops and activities that will help participants have a better understanding and more confidence in:

  • Disability rights
  • Hate crime
  • First aid
  • Mental well-being
  • Safety in the home
  • Personal safety when out
  • Safeguarding
  • Internet safety
  • Safe relationships
  • Money matters

Delivery
Sessions are held here at the Disability Recourse Centre and at various community locations. Or if there is a large enough group of people we can arrange to deliver that course to them in the community or link organisations.

After the sessions there is scope for further support and development for example with more direct support with money management, employment support, volunteering opportunities or fuel debt advice.
