LIFE SKILLS CENTRE
Our Life Skills Centre is based where you are! We are very flexible and aim to support you right where you are, your town, your city, your area. Wherever's convenient to you as we believe that your environment and accessibility is one of the most important factors in personal development.
As we are focused on London, we have agreements from local community centres, libraries, churches, mosques, etc. to support our clients when space is needed for group based work. For one to one appointments we aim to be as flexible as possible to meet you where is most accessible to you. Alternatively we can work with you through social media, telephone and other means that are convenient to you.
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Navigation of Legal, Financial and Welfare systems
Information, advice and guidance on knowing your legal rights, understanding welfare and financial systems - from benefits entitlements, money management to credit facilities and banking resources - referrals to further potential areas of required legal and welfare signposting.
Basic money advice, better off calculations, financial literacy and budgeting tips are provided to young people to better equip them with access and knowledge for financial freedom.
Youth-led discussions & workshops
We actively engage with local community groups and forums that tackle social issues for young people, whilst encouraging our young people to develop their own unique voice. Through peer to peer mentoring and interactive workshops, our participants are encouraged to express ideas in a safe space that maximises their potential.
Accredited and Non-Accredited Training
We offer multiple short and long term courses that lead to a recognised qualification(s) in the following:
Functional Skills (Maths, English)
Work skills and employability
Online Radio Broadcasting
Self Employment start up
Social Media Marketing
Community Outreach and Advocacy
Our outreach is focused on disadvantaged communities within London. Whether care leavers, NEETs, youth offenders or those from other challenging backgrounds, we aim to support young people through advocacy and signposting to relevant support groups for greater interventions to fulfil their life goals.
Signposting and Partnerships
We believe in working in partnerships with local organisations and bodies that serve their communities. We are part of a think tank (Think Tank 720) that focuses on legal issues ranging from housing, criminal, domestic violence to immigration and legal representation in the criminal justice system.
We are proud of our relationships with our affiliates and hope to further extend our reach and influence to continually improve opportunities for the socio-economic, socially excluded and disadvantaged.
