Independent Living

For 16 to 24-year-olds who need to build their confidence, improve social and personal skills, or learn independent living skills, an Independent Living course will help.

After finishing an Independent Living course you could move on to higher courses, do some paid, supported or voluntary work, or go on to supported or independent living. Our Transitions Coordinators will help you move on.
