Leaving Care – Practical Life Skills

Leaving Care – Practical Life Skills

Practical life skills
We teach our young people the basics of independent living so that they understand the importance of
looking after themselves and the home they live in.

For example:

  • cooking
  • cleaning
  • putting out the rubbish
  • laundry
  • budgeting and paying for bills
  • food and clothes shopping getting out and about on public transport


We also provide Lifestyle coaching which can include, for example:

  • advice on choice making
  • building self-esteem and independence
  • maintaining health
  • interaction with neighbours, or people in authority (police, etc.)
  • personal relationships with friends/family
  • responsible use of social media
