Lifeskills

In 2004, we established the Lifeskills Project to help tenants overcome barriers in finding employment and managing their finances better. We promote the learning of new skills and prevent social isolation, by running our own workshops and sign posting tenants to specialist services.

  • Link people in with employment and training opportunities
  • Help to maintain tenancies, budget effectively and manage debts
  • Provide benefit advice e.g.- understanding the Housing Benefit or Universal Credit process
  • Encourage tenants to live independently and to communicate well with others
