The Mentoring for Independence project supports young people, aged between 13 and 25 years old, to learn Independent Living Skills, through the transition of being a child, to becoming a young adult.
· Travel Training
· Personal Care
· Social Awareness
Young people will gain confidence, self esteem, friendships, practical and emotional support, in a safe, flexible, friendly and fun environment.
The bespoke project is delivered in 3 hour sessions, Thursdays during school term, at the Independent Living Hub, and includes support from experienced staff and the use of building based resources, such as accessible kitchen, computers and a Nintendo Wii in our chill out room.
Sessions may also be available during school and college holidays, evenings and weekends, with opportunities to access social and leisure opportunities.
As a local organisation we very much rely on the support of our local community, and continue to support people flexibly to have greater choice and control and remove the barriers that disabled people and children experience in their everyday lives. We support over 2,000 people every year. But we need your help.
